Following the fiction that visitors were able to explore last year, this time François Mitterrand Media Library transports the audience into the realm of science fiction. From October 11 through Saturday, November 5, an exhibition, workshops and films are presented. “Science fiction is a literary genre that can be transferred to many media outside of books: in cinema, in music, in painting… It also makes it possible to reach a wide audience, male and female, young or adult.” Explains Tanya Commels, Director of the Media Library.
This exhibition was written by Pierre Stolz. The French science fiction author, former professor of classics, has been, since 1996, a critic for the fantasy and science fiction magazine, Bifrost. It is Exposika, a structure specialized in prefabricated and tailor-made exhibition design, which provides the public with an opportunity to discover science fiction.
This genre describes hypotheses about what our future could be and separates unknown worlds such as distant planets and parallel universes, always starting with scientific and technological theories and current knowledge. Already Jules Verne tried his hand at science fiction with “Extraordinary Travels”.
Tomorrow will be the new 1 hour OKLM Teen Club, which takes place every first Friday of every month, on the theme of SF, from 5.30 pm. Saturday at 11 am, an aperitif reading where the audience can enjoy an hour listening to excerpts from books, movies and music Or even participate in the readings. Submission is free. At 2 p.m., a creative workshop led by librarians will be presented to children aged 7-10. This will include creating an automated popup card (animated card). Cutting, gluing and folding will be the order of the day. It is essential that you remember to register participants for the Media Library reception. Finally, starting at 2:30 p.m., an SF special was read and approved. A chance to share your genre favorites or come and get ideas for future readings or next movies to watch.
The media library also provides a small brochure that reviews the exhibition, and provides a bibliography and filmography.
