New technologies awaken us and offer opportunities. Those opportunities do not always receive enough attention. The media emphasises the doomsday-scenarios (soon we’ll be out of a job) or they only show the economical side of things. Little is said about the ethical questions: What kind of relationship will we humans have with technology? And to what extent do we want technology to play in our lives? The Art exposition, Robot Love, builds on the notion that a life without technology has become unthinkable, and therefore challenges us to think about a fundamental question: “Who are we and what do we want to become, a hybrid between tech, flesh and blood?”
Keeping up with technological advancement
It is clear that this is something which we need to think about. But what would it be like to have a robot as a co-worker? Can you do business with an android and what would your relationship be like? What is the impact of A.I. on our daily work? And, perhaps, job application through an algorithm, what opportunities does that offer for our organisation? The list goes on. All of these questions will be portrayed this fall from a surprising, exciting angle: namely from the perspective of 50 internationally appraised artists. Which makes a visit to Robot Love a must for every organisation with it’s sights on the future!
Stretching our thought boundaries
Why do artists, in particular, play the role of navigator here? Like no other, artists know how to make the expanse of our future tangible and insightful. If art history has thought us anything, it is worthwhile to follow artists. To exploring future possibilites and to shaping them. Precisely, the challenges faced by organisations today. Every organisation – some sooner than others – will have to take their stance on the specific role of technology. Where do we stand between technological innovation and the future of our organisation and its people?
To prevent robotics and A.I. becoming hollow phrases, it is now time for business professionals to discuss these topics – in a radically different manner.
What does Robot Love have to offer?
The artworks at Robot Love encourage us to think of the impact of technology on our society and our human being. On how we work and how we live. It offers different opportunity for reflection, on this rollercoaster train we’ve all been on since the invention of the internet.
We guarantee that a visit led by AimAtArt will result in novel ideas and fresh insights, and inspire further development on the questions raised. In short, we won’t ask if you’ll be coming to Eindhoven this fall, but WHEN will you come to Eindhoven?
