Brain Space Laboratory, Cycle "Towards a Cosmomorphic World," Station 11 "Living Forms, From Cosmos to Earth"
Study day, lecture & talks at Centre Pompidou-Metz on the occasion of the exhibition Infinite Garden. From Giverny to Amazonia 

 

Co-founded in 2009 by artist Ann Veronica Janssens and Nathalie Ergino, director of the Institute for Contemporary Art (IAC), the Brain Space Laboratory explores practical and theoretical research connecting space, time, body and brain, by bringing together artists and researchers in neurosciences, astrophysics, biology, geology, art history and philosophy.

For the cycle entitled "Towards a Cosmomorphic World," launched in November 2016, the Laboratory is expanding its field of exploration to the organic connections uniting humanity to the cosmos, looking for alternative conceptions to anthropocentrism.

How can creation and research contribute today to this change in paradigm and establish a new way of looking at the world? Could a common responsability, shared by artists, scientists and intellectuals, pave the way for alternative actions?

On the occasion of the exhibition Infinite Garden. From Giverny to Amazonia currently at Centre Pompidou-Metz, station 11 of the Laboratory is dedicated to the theme "Living Forms, From Cosmos to Earth" [Le vivant, du cosmos à la Terre]. The program will consist of:
