Mets ton beste clèt’che

7 December 2018 - 26 May 2019

The “bande des pêcheurs”, the visschersbende (group of the fishermen), a compact, disparate crowd forming a colourful kaleidoscope, is at the centre of the carnival of Dunkirk. Together with the population and the tourists, they get physically involved in a huge collective chahut. This big “organized mess” conducted by a drum major attracts each year tens of thousands of participants and visitors. “Mets ton beste clèt’che” (put on your best costume) presented all aspects of the festivities of Dunkirk through a rich scenography. More than 70 costumes were completed by photo-paintings and video projections. These costumes have become part of the Museum’s collections.
