In the framework of the exhibition, LABoral develops a line of hands-on activities that not only brings brings the exhibition activities closer to the public but also work on the idea of the Art Centre as an open lab that establishes a connection between art, science, technology and society. The aim is to create a space where artistic production and scientific research come together, providing the public with the key elements and tools needed for reflection, experimentation and the critical and creative use of technology.
