Travel to a sci-fi victorian era... in Barcelona!

The Barcelona Steampunk Fair is back for another year and organized under the EuroSteamCon brand. Just like last year, the fair will become a stage where designers, artists, artisans and performers will show their creations, in addition to participating in various activities.

What is Steampunk?

Steampunk started as a literary sub-genre within science fiction during the turn of the 20th century, inspired by the works of authors like H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. Over the years, this sub-genre has evolved into an artistic and sociocultural movement and not just a literary one. Steampunk takes place in a world where steam technology remains the dominant industry and usually takes place in Victorian England.

For this reason, works in the steampunk style often feature anachronistic technology or futuristic inventions, all through a Victorian looking glass, reflecting their culture, art, fashion, and even architecture.
