ARTISTS AND SCIENTISTS MERGING TOGETHER IN ONE EVENING
The Leonardo Art, Science, Evening Rendezvous (LASER) in Zurich is hosted by the cafe Salotto. This series features talks by renowned artists and scientists. It takes place on the first Tuesday of each month. LASER Zurich offer an international platform for the discussion of paradigmatic shifts within the scientific research, the implementation of new technologies and the ongoing development of artistic research. It also aims to create a network for artists and scientists to meet and discuss their research, while furthering the discourse of significant issues within these trans-disciplinary groups and practices.
