For Scientists and Artists

 When art, science, innovation and technology collide.

Artists are often influenced by technological advancements and by science and innovation more generally. Indeed, many artists currently explore the scientific and technological developments of the 21st century to imagine new ways of doing art. Robotics, lighting, computing, digital objects are just a short list of examples. In this line of reasoning, art and science become complementary disciplines.
To bring this unique experience to Brazil, we organize and support events, exchanges and exhibitions between the Brazilian and Swiss arts–science interface.
