.able launch week | March 23 - 29

On March 23, .able, a free image-based multiplatform journal that publishes research at the intersection of art, design and sciences, will be inaugurated. To celebrate the launch, from March 23 to 29, 2023, a week of activities is being held to discover .able, and explore radically new forms of publications focused on investigating contemporary sociopolitical, anthropotechnical, and environmental issues. Online events and in-person meetings in France and Spain will be offered in French, English, and Spanish for a first introduction to .able and its network.
