Exhibition

HELLO, ROBOT. DESIGN BETWEEN HUMAN AND MACHINE

MAK – Österreichisches Museum für angewandte Kunst / Gegenwartskunst

29.9.–1.10.2017

Guided tours are essential educational tools. This is also true when creating contact with the omnipresent robot species. Robotics – driven by Digital Modernity – has already fundamentally altered our working and daily lives. HELLO, ROBOT. told the story of a convergence of human and machine. More than 200 exhibition objects from the realms of art, design, and architecture, as well as examples from technology, film, literature, fashion, science, and pop culture examined the inexorable hype around intelligent machines and the crucial role played by design. As the first wide-ranging exhibition on the opportunities and challenges presented by robotics, visitors could reassess their own attitude towards new technologies.
