Inserm has long played a proactive role in scientific outreach in order to share science and biomedical research advances with the general public. And this summer 2018 will be no exception, with its host of events in which art and science will meet, in which our researchers will participate in La recherche de l’art #7 in Arles, Binôme in Avignon, and the Science in The City festival in Toulouse. The diary of Inserm’s scientific and cultural events, which include a photography exhibition, play, and visual performances, is presented below.
Since 2011, Inserm laboratories offer photographic residencies to young ENSP graduates. La recherche de l’art brings art and science together to offer a vision that is astonishing, unexpected and always innovative. Philippe Rostagno, Researcher at the Mediterranean Center for Molecular Medicine (Nice) hosted Alexandre Kong A Siou; Sophie Nunes Figueirado from the Brain and Spine Institute (Paris) hosted Robin Lopvet; Laurence Doumenc from the Digestive Health Research Institute (Toulouse) hosted Amélie Blanc.
A singular encounter between an Inserm researcher and an author has given us this play, which is interpreted by three actors. The reading, by les sens des mots, will be accompanied by an original musical creation. The result – sensitive, astonishing and often funny – gives us a different look at science and those involved in it.
