Why go there?
The Duduchothèque was opened in honour of Jean Cabut, called Cabu, a caricaturist, press cartoonist, and comic book artist.
Born on 13 January 1938 in Châlons-en-Champagne, this was where Cabu drew his first crayon-strokes. Killed during the attack on Charlie Hebdo on 7 January 2015, he was laid to rest in his home town, which wanted to pay tribute to him by creating a cultural space.
Named after the Grand Duduche, a character created by Cabu, the archetypical bottom-of-the-class student and an evocation of the journalist’s childhood, the Duduchothèque is a space for exhibition, readings, research, film, and learning.
