Ottonie von Roeder

Stadtarbeit – City Work



IDRV – Institute of Design Research Vienna


What happens when robots and artificial intelligences take your job? What would you teach this technology about your work? And what is it that you really, really want to do in the future? The automation of our labor forces us to rethink the value and social organization of work. At the same time, this opens up the potential of a sustainable, cultural change: from labor to work! Together with the designer Ottonie von Roeder, the IDRV – Institute of Design Research Vienna will open a temporary office in order to prototypically abolish labor and to visualize a future without labor. What does the robot that will replace you in the future look like? The accompanying installation can be viewed daily during the festival’s opening hours.
