CULTURAL ABDUCTION IN THE CASA ENCENDIDA

ARSTRONOMY | via  La Casa Encendida

ARSTRONOMY | via La Casa Encendida

Like it or not, science fiction, man arriving at the moon, the study of the universe and even the fenomenon of UFOs excite our imaginations – and the culture and art of the 20th century. The “Casa Encendida” shows us the impact of such topics in the new exhibition ARSTRONOMY: where science meets imagination and reality meets fiction. Nacional and international artists from many generations reflect upon the same themes-  the “out-of-body” experience, outer space, science and ufology (study of unidentified flying objects).

Where: The Casa Encendida, Ronda de Valencia 2 (Metro: Embajadores).

When: Sundays to Mondays, from 10:00am – 10:00pm.

Free entrance.
