LABoral Centro de Arte y Creación industrial organises tomorrow Friday, February 19, at 7 p.m. the round table Contar la ciencia, at Fundación Municipal de Cultura de Gijón. This seminar is part of the programme of activities on Art, Science and Technology of the exhibition Materia prima (in the framework of EDASN, European Digital Art and Science Network).

Based on the example of the film maker and communicator Guillermo Zuñiga, this seminar will reflect upon scientific dissemination, analysing the role played by artists and citizens in general in the construction, experimentation and dissemination of knowledge.

This round table will be joined by John Rojas and Jorge Chachero, members of the Asociación Española de Cine e Imagen Científicos (ASECIC); David Álvarez, from the blog Fauna Cantábrica and the artist Lorena Lozano. Amador Menéndez Velázquez, scientist at ITMA Materials Technology, will act as moderator.

The screenings included in this seminar are: Las abejas (1951), Florinda y el viento (1965), and El salmón de Asturias, (1991).

The exhibition Materia prima –that will be at LABoral until nexte May 8- is a lab for citizens that brings together art, science and technology with the purpose of generating a space where artistic production and scientific research come together, providing the public with the keys and the tools needed for reflection, experimentation and the critical and creative use of technology.
