LABORATORIA’s mission is to establish an environment for creative interdisciplinary communications, throw together contemporary art and science, and in the process
facilitate the generation of works of art that use cutting-edge technologies and change our view of the world.
Since 2008 LABORATORIA has implemented:
30 international exhibitions, 10,000 Russian and international publications, 20 conferences and symposia
LALABORATORIA is a meeting place, a forum for discussions and round tables of scientists and artists, and anyone interested in the establishment of a Russian and global Science-Art community. It is the exhibition space for the implementation of experimental projects visualising a dialogue between contemporary art and science. It represents the development point of an independent global Art&Science space.
We create internationally recognised works of science-art
We exhibit the technological art of foreign and Russian artists and scientists
We research and evaluate the use of cutting-edge technologies in contemporary art
We popularise science-art to a mainstream audience
We research changes in society related to the development of science and technologies and proactively respond to the most topical issues in the technological environment.
We instigate multidisciplinary interaction to foster the creation of a new artistic language and artistic forms tailored to the new technological reality.
We create innovative multidisciplinary educational and exhibition formats.
We create new approaches to the interpretation of innovative technologies and scientific breakthroughs.
We popularise technological art to a mainstream audience.
We interpret the link between technologies and mankind and embody these ideas in artistic-scientific projects.
One of the main methods at LABORATORIA is the introduction and assimilation of artists in scientific laboratories and institutes and vice-versa the inclusion of scientists in the experimental environment of the artistic context.
