Robots. Work. Our Future

The vision of a digital humanism will be brought close to reality by the VIENNA BIENNALE 2017. Under the motto Robots. Work. Our Future, creative spaces will open up for contemplating meaningful living and working and the sustainable use of robotics and artificial intelligence in the digital age. Contributions from the fields of art, design, and architecture will sketch out the joint potential of robots and human work as an opportunity to bring about humanely motivated positive change.

The VIENNA BIENNALE is thus not only aimed at people interested in art, design, and architecture, but a wider audience, with the goal of raising awareness about the possibilities of fine art and the applied arts for the challenges of our time.
