Machine Archaeology is an online discussion event opening the six weeks residency programme Youth and A.I.: (Un)learning with robots. We will introduce the resident artists Richard Kučera Guzmán & Emma Záhradníková, visiting artist Tomáš Danielis and together with the invited guests we will explore the very essence of machines as analogue and digital systems.

🟠 Guests:

Through installations and machines, RALF BAECKER explores fundamental mechanisms of action and the effects of new media and technologies.

THEO JANSEN has been engaged in creating new forms of life: the so called strandbeests. These are not made of protein like existing forms of lives but they’re made of another basis stuff; yellow plastic tubes. Skeletons made from these tubes are able to walk. They get their energy from the wind.

TOMÁŠ DANIELIS is a choreographer and media artist working between Slovakia, Belgium and Austria. His creative focus is oriented on questions of communication perceptions and illusions in relation to questions of influence of power within sociological frame. He works on the edge of performing and visual arts.

RICHARD KUČERA GUZMÁN is mainly focusing on projects investigating relationship between technologies and society. EMMA ZÁHRADNÍKOVÁ is an emerging conceptual visual artist currently studying at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. They will spend six weeks in the Research and Development Department of the Slovak Design Centre – Inolab, where they will work on changing behaviour of NAO6 robot. In collaboration with visiting artist Tomáš Danielis and a team of scientists they will engage groups of children (10 – 14 yo) into their working process. 🤖 With an artist’s critical reflection, the project aims to challenge the current design and use of this technology. We want to stimulate dialogue around issues such as: What does it mean to grow up with robots? How does the technology design process take young people’s perspectives and expectations into account?

The Youth And A.I.: (Un)learning With Robots artist in residence programme is a collaborative project between the Goethe Institute Bratislava, the Sensorium Festival, and the Slovak Design Centre in Bratislava.

"Generation A=Algorithm" is a project by the Goethe-Institut, supported with special funds from the Federal Foreign Office for the German EU Council Presidency in 2020.
