Opening VIENNA BIENNALE 2017
Robots. Work. Our Future


© buero bauer

The VIENNA BIENNALE 2017: Robots. Work. Our Future focuses on the potential of art, design, and architecture to contribute to an environmentally and socially sustainable concept of the digital age that is also committed to a new humanism. At various exhibition venues across the entire city, the VIENNA BIENNALE 2017 brings together some 300 designers, architects, artists, and other participants who draw a complex picture of our future digital world with their speculative and utopian (or dystopian) as well as auspicious practical scenarios.
