Espace Rousseau

Jean-Jacques Rousseau was born on June 28, 1712, in the historical part of Geneva, 40 GrandRue, where the Espace Rousseau is now located. Its purpose is to keep alive and make more widely known the thought and work of Rousseau and in so doing pay homage to one of the most enduring thinkers of all time.

Through a 25 minute audiovisual journey, that takes place in a contemporary setting, visitors are able to trace the life of Geneva's most famous citizen, world renowned writer, musician and philosopher of the Enlightenment.

A subtle synchronisation of image and sound, evocative iconography, and extracts from his literary and musical work bring to life the multiple facets of this celebrated figure, author of the Social Contract, the Confessions and the New Heloise.

As a reminder of Jean-Jacques Rousseaus presence in Geneva, the Espace Rousseau also organises events outside its premises.
