Kunsthaus Graz and the Museum Jean Tinguely
Basel are organising a symposium on the subject
of robotics in the context of art.
The event will explore the cultural history of the
phenomenon, robots in everyday use and the
importance of artificial intelligence for the
development and self-image of society.
Robot Dreams is a platform for diverse scientists,
artists and cultural historians to pursue the social,
cultural historical and artistic implications of the subject.
The symposium is closely connected with the joint
exhibition program the two museums are planning
for summer and autumn 2010 likewise focusing on
the phenomenon of robotic and art.

In the development of robots and particularly intelligent
swarm robots, the discussions range from illuminating
evolutionary theory to learning to understand biological
behaviour. What does it mean if robots penetrate our
thinking and action - do we need to "rethink work",
for example, as Professor Albers of Karlsruhe University believes?
And what does it mean for art?
How does art react and what new thinking will involve
if robotics and artificial intelligence give rise to
new materials and media and new fields of
universal interconnections?
Will we still be able to regard the fine arts as a discrete realm?

Starting on Friday, July 3, 5pm, at Kunsthaus Graz
with a introductionary speech by
Oswald Wiener on
"Intelligenz und Künstliche Intelligenz". (held in german)

With a. o.: Oswald Wiener, Kirsty Boyle, Andreas Broeckmann, Jon Kessler, Max Lungarella, Niki Passath, Francois Roche, Manuela Veloso, Cosima Wagner …

The Symposium is held in conjunction with RoboCup 2009
the world championship and most important event for intelligent robots in Graz.
