Barcelona will share its Science Biennial with Madrid


MadridThe third edition of the City and Science Biennial will take place in Barcelona and Madrid between February 21 and 26, as announced this Tuesday by the Deputy Mayor of Culture, Education, Science and Community, Jordi Martí, in a press conference at the Círculo de Bellas Artes de Madrid. “We already shared the Biennial of Thought with Palma and Valencia and, in this desire to strengthen ties with other cities, it seemed to us that Madrid could be a great ally to continue spreading scientific culture to all citizens”, said Martí . The circumstance is that the two cities share cultural and scientific co-capital.

The initiative is also promoted by the Ministry of Science through the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT). Its director, Imma Aguilar, has stated that the experience of working in the two cities was “very stimulating”.

This third edition of the Biennale will reflect on what it means to live on the planet and, more specifically, to live in cities.
