38 - Robot Dreams

Art has long held up a lens to science and technology. It has even been a driving force behind scientific innovation. Science fiction writers and artists relish the potential that new scientific discoveries represent.

 

Named after the collection of short stories by author and biochemist Isaac Asimov, Robot Dreams was a contemporary art exhibition that took place at the Kunsthaus in Graz at the end of 2010. Part of the steirischer herbst festival, and supported by the AVL Cultural Foundation, artists were invited to create works that explored subjects such as cybernetics and artificial intelligence. And they were posed the question “where does contemporary technology stand?”

 

Artists such as Thomas Baumann, John Bock, Kirsty Boyle, John Kessler, Richard Kriesche, Nikolaus Passath and others explored these topics and more. A vast spectrum of perspectives challenged and excited visitors to the exhibition, which was organized in collaboration with the Tinguely Museum in Basel.
