Note / In addition to Vrroem, Van Warmerdam wanted to make a work for the exhibition in Galerie Micheline Szwajcer in Antwerp as a reaction to the Belgian comic book culture. For this work she chose an image associated with the comic hero Tintin and made a rocket, which can actually be launched by standing on a pedal. On the advice of the firm of solicitors Boekel De Nerée concerning the copyright, she asked Erven Hergé’s permission to use the typical red and white rocket.
