Machines and Robots


Machines and Robots – Edition Digital Culture
€ 18,-

Machines and Robots studies how the subject of robotics have been approached in science and technology, in literature and art, and in cultural history, wondering whether machines are able to be creative. Several leading scholars looked into this, including Andreas Broeckmann who approaches the issue from the cultural scientist’s perspective, studying the impact that machines and robots have had on art during the 20th century. Whereas Philipp Theisohn, director of the research program “condition extraterrestrial” at Zurich University describes the rich history of robotics in science fiction, and Roland Wetzel, director of the Tingly Museum in Basel, is an expert on the sculptor’s art and is familiar how much it influenced contemporary artists.
