Jean-Jacques Rousseau was born at 40 Grand-Rue in Geneva’s Old Town. The Espace Rousseau has now been created at this address with the goal of keeping alive and further disseminating the work of one of the minds that have had the profoundest impact on modern thinking.
The trajectory of this illustrious Genevan citizen, writer, musician and Enlightenment philosopher, is staged in a subtle synchronisation of sound and image.
Extracts from literary and musical works bring the character of Rousseau to life and enable visitors to discover the many facets of the author of the Social Contract, the Confessions and the New Héloise.
