Hello, Robot. Design Between Human and Machine
Exhibition, Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, Germany.
Science fiction becomes reality: robotics has been finding its way into our lives for a number of years now. Examples range from transport drones and intelligent sensors to the debate around Industry 4.0.
In this exhibition, the Vitra Design Museum thoroughly examines the current robotics boom for the very first time. Presented are some 150 displays, including examples of robots used in the home, industry, and medical field, as well as in media installations, computer games, and those in film and literature. It demonstrates how robotics is changing our lives and how design is changing robotics. At the same time, the presentation broadens our view of the ethical and political issues associated therewith.
