Hello, Robot

Design between humans and machines

Whether they are factory operators,characters in a film, cuddly companions for old people or military drones, everyone has some idea of what robots are. But have you ever actually encountered one? The interface between man and machine is getting smaller by the day.

This exhibition investigates our relationship with technology through a wide variety of objects ranging from pop culture, commercial wearables and design prototypes to interactive installations, video reports and industrial robots.

Will robots eventually make us more creative and generate new jobs? That is one of the questions Hello, Robot. poses. Or: to what extent do you actually want to rely on technology? Smart assistants are already showing us the way, monitoring the condition of our body or acting as a playmate for our children. But do we also want machines that look after the elderly or satisfy our sexual cravings? Who knows, maybe we will all have a bit of cyborg in us soon!

Are robots taking over the world or set to save it? What do you think? Designers are delivering ideas and actual solutions that demonstrate that the reality lies somewhere in between the two. Robots are a reason for great excitement and critical refl ection at the same time. How do we manage a world that is becoming increasingly digital, smart and more autonomous?

Hello, Robot.

Hello, Robot.

Factory operator, fi lm character or military drone — we all know what a robot looks like.
But have you ever actually encountered one?
The interface between man and machine is getting smaller by the day. The smartphone, for example, has already changed
our lives forever. The exhibition Hello, Robot. Design Between Man and Machine lays bare our relationship with technology.
