In their graphic novels Les Cités Obscures (Cities of the Fantastic), Belgian comic artist François Schuiten and the French writer Benoît Peeters visualise this fictional counter world in which humans live in independent city-states that each have developed their own civilization and distinctive architectural style.

During this The Knight's Move lecturel Benoît Peeters will talk about their series of graphic novels, architecture, urban planning and much more. Read the article Obscure Cities On The Other Side Of The Sun, an introduction to their work on the website of The Pop Up City, media partner of The Knight's Move.

The Knight's Move
Survey lectures season 2013-2014
The Knight's Move is a series of lectures by eminent international speakers who stand out by their unusual, enlightening and inspirational visions concerning the city, urbanity, the public domain, and community. Just as the knight moves in an atypical and unusual way across the chessboard, Stroom Den Haag likewise wants to cut across all disciplines and thus stimulate rethinking the city.

Media partner of The Knight's Move 2013-2014 is The Pop-Up City.

The Knight's Move lectures are made possible in part by the Creative Industries Fund NL and the Haagse Bluf Fonds.
