Science Friction

Living Among Companion Species

Is it possible to imagine other earthly stories? Can we conceive of other ways of living among different species? This exhibition explores these issues with the help of a selection of works of art and popular science. It proposes a change of mentality and sensitivity that questions the supremacy of the human species, opting for a view of the world understood as an ecosystem where all the planet’s species coexist.

Maria Ptqk: "Science Friction is between the art exibhition and a science museum"

Curator Maria Ptqk presents the creative, artistic universe of the exhibition “Science Friction”, a journey through works of art and science that proposes a change of mentality and sensitivity in inter-species relationships. With “Science Friction”, you’ll discover a view of the world as an ecosystem where all the planet’s species coexist.
