The cartoonist Cabu was one of the most talented drawer of our time. Murdered in January 7th 2015 during the Charlie Hebdo attack by islamists terrorists he let behind him a lucid and generous art work. During the exhibition "Cabu way of laughing" the traveller can understand better the Cabu universe towards several cartoons who show us the themes he has used like the beauf, the famous French TV host Dorothee, le grand Duduche, the jazz music and politics. Cabu owns a curious but also political involved mind. He made a huge critic about the foolish of some characters like the "beauf" a man who vote for far right or the discipline inside all the armys. He doesn't like the religions in a time where the freedom of speeching and thinking about that stays something dangerous. Cabu rejected censorship, the cars and sports events but with humor because his purpose is to use laughing for arousing our thinking. Cabu loves jazz music and he has done several cartoons about famous singers or musicians men and women underlining his passion for this kind of music.
