In recent years we have lived through an explosion of different models in cultural, artistic, technological and social laboratories. They all have in common an experimental culture, based on permanent research and innovation, and the exploration of new collaborative forms of knowledge creation.

Ramon Sangüesa

The evolution of lab culture

Juan Insua

«The studio is a laboratory, not a factory. An exhibition is the result of your experiments, but the process is never-ending. So an exhibition is not a conclusion.»

Chris Ofili

Pier Paolo Pasolini (The Decamerón)
