In 1740, in her preface to Institutions de Physique, Émilie du Châtelet, Voltaire's mistress, stressed the importance of learning about science from an early age, just as she had done in the literary field.

The team of the Association de ContreBande Dessinée cannot express better than this eminent representative of the Enlightenment the importance of opening one's mind to knowledge. Like her, it is now trying to reconcile these two sisters, literature and science, by approaching the latter through comics.

From Voltaire, who played an essential role in the development of science and its dissemination in the 18th century, to Pierre Lambert, owner of the château in the 19th century and head of the Laboratoire des Recherches physiques at the Sorbonne, the château of Voltaire is particularly linked to the field of science. It is therefore only natural that it should host this new thematic exhibition.
