Think Lab

In the first event of what’s hoped to become an ongoing collaboration, IBEC is joining forces with Barcelona’s Arts Santa Monica centre and the British Council this weekend for a special activity looking at the scientific laboratory from a cultural point of view.

Within the framework of the centre’s ‘Think Art, Act Science’ exhibition, ‘Think Lab’ on 25-26 February will comprise two workshops, a round table debate and a performance taking a look at the lab as a cultural phenomenon. As a place for experimentation, for trial-and-error hypothesizing, for creating knowledge through experience and for opening the door to future innovation, a multidisciplinary and international scientific laboratory has a spirit and a dynamic that can share much with culture as a whole.

Friday’s event at 15:00, ‘On Collaboration’, is a workshop by writer, researcher and events curator Bronac Ferran and has limited places. Saturday’s schedule starts at 12:00 and includes a talk by Nicola Triscott, founding director of The Arts Catalyst; a guided tour of the ‘Think Art, Act Science’ exhibition; a round table on the ‘Dynamics of collaboration and forms of creativity’; and a performance by UK artist duo Semiconductor.
