Guided night tour at the Fabra Observatory

Carl Sagan, in the TV series "Cosmos", told us that our star, the Sun, is second or third generation and that all the material we step on, the iron that travels through our blood, the calcium that forms the teeth and the carbon in our genes they were created a billion years ago inside a giant red star. Sagan concluded his explanation with one of the most famous phrases of the series "we are made of star stuff". The phrase helped us to become more interested in the universe. With this guided visit to the Fabra Observatory, you will not travel as far as Sagan proposed, you will stay in our Cosmos neighborhood, but you can feel the experience of coming into contact with the Universe.

Cheap gas stations in Barcelona | Gasoline, diesel and biodiesel prices

Finding a gas station cheaper than another in Barcelona will save us more than a few cents. The difference, filling a tank with 50 liters, can be € 11 for gasoline, € 10 for diesel and € 7 for biodiesel. Resources to compare and list fuel prices by cities there are many. What we want to explain in this article has to do with the other important variable at the time of refueling: the location of cheap gas stations.

An ambiguous relationship, with views of Barcelona, supermineralized and video art

Picasso - Picabia. Painting in question

When Picasso and Picabia were little known, the press often confused them by the similarity of their names. This anecdote was perhaps the harbinger of an ambiguous relationship between two apparently antagonistic painters in their way of understanding art. In the first stage of their career they exhibited in the same gallery (1904) but their trajectories crossed in few occasions during that stage. This exhibition, however, reveals for the first time the numerous points in common of their work and the crossed histories of these two great contemporary painters, as well as their relationship and attitude towards the same changing reality.

Halloween special 2018

Halloween in Barcelona: parties, concerts and outstanding activities

Trick or Treating. In the case of Barcelona we should say Halloween or Castanyada, although it seems that Halloween is winning, well, let's say it: it has won. Something of fusion has taken place but in this case the external tradition is the one that has taken the leading role.

A cryptorave, the Asian film festival, the deployment of manga and cinema for the environment

The Influencers

The Influencers is a festival of rebellious projects that combines art, politics, technology and new popular electronic cultures. This edition, the 14th, in which women take center stage, will revolve around the notion of the new digital dark age, approaching the symbolic, political and material contradictions of what we summarily call "internet" and that is much more what it seems like. As featured activities: a cryptorave (you'll have to become a computer miner to get the ticket and know where it takes place), a workshop on decentralized web publishing methods, and the Barcelona Internet Tour, a kind of tourist tour in non tourist places in key of performance and profane lighting.
