picto JAS2019

New perspective

False or repressed memory? Juxtaposition of perception and memory? A sign of previous life, an illusion, a temporal anomaly? The eternal return of the same? The feeling of déjà-vu intrigues both artists, philosophers and scientists.

The 2019 edition of the Art & Science Days will be held for the first time in Saint-Etienne. While offering new encounters and discoveries, this 6th edition will include some reminders from previous editions – all this in a new context.

We dedicate this 2019 edition of the Art & Science Days to déjà-vu in its different dimensions.
