Battlestar Galactica: Humans vs. Robots

Screening and battle of illustrators



Do a human and a robot interpret the world in the same way? Are there specifically human and specifically robotic sensitivities? Could they ever be confused with each other?

In this Kosmopolis session we pay tribute to the science fiction series Battlestar Galactica with a pacific battle: one that will be fought by David Baldeón and Àlex Santaló, two illustrators who will sketch live while one of the episodes of the series is screened (33. E1 S1, 2003). One of them will try to express the viewpoint of a robot and the other that of a human. Will we know who is who? Come along and join in a chat for series addicts with the illustrators and the people in charge of Serielizados Fest, Barcelona's International TV-Series Festival.

Battlestar Galactica was originally a hit TV series broadcast between 1978 and 1980 which was reinterpreted in a new production aired between 2004 and 2009. The storyline of the series is based on a “classic” conflict of science fiction: the rebellion of machines against the oppression of the human species, but the tale’s power has made it one of the most iconic works in its genre. Battlestar Galactica has been spun out, in addition, into numerous formats: videogames, films, webisodes, books and comics... demonstrating the many possibilities for narrative expression currently allowed by the diversity of formats available.
