The III Steampunk Fair of Barcelona concentrates the biggest fans and experts of steam technology at the Centre Cívic de Cotxeres de Sants
The steampunk emerged as a literary sub-genre, which mimics the Victorian speculative fiction found in The Time Machine (1895) by HG Wells. Over time, it matured into a current artistic and cultural movement that surpassed the literary environment. The steampunk unfolds in a setting where steam technology remains the predominant, and is usually located in England during the Victorian era, where it is not unusual to find common elements of science fiction or fantasy.
All lovers of this current, which makes converge disciplines of fashion, modeling, literature, performance and creative craftsmanship, can meet on 3 and 4 October, at the Centre Cívic de Cotxeres de Sants, where there will be held The III Steampunk Fair of Barcelona, within the framework of the European EuroSteamCon 2015 event.
