Sourire 58 [Smile 58] : an official Comic Book to mark Expo 58’s 60th anniversaryThis geopolitical thriller is set right in the heart of the 1958 World’s Fair!
The artist, Baudouin Deville, recreates the typical atmosphere of Brussels with passionate attention to detail. The comic book is written by historian Patrick Weber and the adventure is a perfectly documented story of fiction [french & dutch].

And in order to emphasise the link between the Atomium’s 60th birthday and the publication of the comic book Sourire 58, images from the book will be displayed in an outdoor exhibition installed at the foot of the Atomium, from  March to September 2018.

FLO 58 beer will be recreated for the Atomium’s 60th birthday. The Flobecq brewery, which produced a beer for Expo 58, will recreate this exceptional brew. The special vintage will be unveiled on 23 March 2018.

The taste sensations produced by this beer are similar to those of the original 50’s brew, and yet it is 100% ORGANIC. Through this love story, brewer John Christian Kavakure aims to reconnect with Expo 58, appealing to those who recall it fondly and new generations alike.
