Dedicated to the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack in January 2015, 12 people were killed by armed terrorist groups, completing two years and nearly 60 people.

Gluck is also currently working on the launch of Rucha and the Museum of Humorous Arts in Brussels, which will be open to the public in 2024.
