Lab Café Alternative Café - Surströmming Opening Festival: Scandinavian Food Culture

2015-10-15 (Thu) 19:00 - 21:00

Alternative Cafés are an open-type meeting in which we take a second look at the way we live, particularly from the cultural viewpoint, and think about the meaning and shape of our lives. This time, in commemoration of entering autumn, the season of good appetite, we'll hear from our guest about the food culture of Northern Europe. But that's not all! We'll also have a Surströmming Opening Festival. Canned surströmming is said to have the strongest smell in the world! This is your change to take a glimpse at the food culture of Scandinavia. Come join us this fall and experience the thrills of North European food culture.

What is Lab Café?

A major program instituted at Art Area B1, "Lab Café" is designed and implemented by the Center for the Study of Communication-Design. Lab Café is an interactive program in which participants have wide-ranging discussions on a variety of topics. The program aims to make the station a communication space in the arts and academia by taking up various themes in philosophy, art, science and technology and providing the general public with chances to be exposed to expertise on those topics.

What is Art Area B1?

The concourse of the first basement of Naniwabashi Station was set up as Art Area B1 when the Keihan Electric Railway's Nakanoshima Line was opened on October 19, 2008. Since then, the project has aimed to make the station a center of artistic communication.
