Machines and Robots

How robotics, digitization and artificial intelligence change our lives.

With texts and interviews by Raffaello D’Andrea, Andreas Broeckmann, Roland Fischer, Martina Kammermann, Bruno Spoerri, Philipp Theisohn, Mads Pankow and Roland Wetzel

Machines, automats and robots have always exerted a special fascination on artists. But computers, the Internet and digitization have given this fascination entirely new impulses. Today artificial intelligence and robotics are more important than ever before.  Industry 4.0 is a new keyword.

The fifth publication in the Edition Digital Culture series provides insights into current research topics and investigates their artistic potential and possible issues, as shown for example in the projects of Daniel Imboden and the !Mediengruppe Bitnik.

The bilingual publication contains illustrations as well as an extensive glossary of the most important terms.
