3+4 December 2016 • Festival Les Urbaines • Lausanne (CH)
Les Urbaines is a festival dedicated to staging the most contemporary artistic practices, in a broad spectrum ranging from performing to visual arts and music, and so much more… There are no headliners and everything is free!
In 2016, Les Urbaines celebrates twenty years of pioneering, twenty years of relentless aesthetic adventures, twenty years of undisciplined excitement.
Das Fremde will come home to Lausanne for the first time and our agents can be visited at Espace Démart, Côtes-de-Montbenon 17.
15~20 November 2016 • Digital Brainstorming • Zürich (CH)
What is the relation between man and machine? Can humans feel empathy towards artificial intelligences? How do machines perceive us? Do we look too real to them?
Under the title “Us & Them”, Digital Brainstorming presents an exhibition featuring two robotic installations at Kunstraum Walcheturm in Zurich. This program will be accompanied by talks, workshops and other artistic events dealing with the topics of AI, empathy and the forthcoming side-by-side life of humans and robots.
Das Fremde will premiere there along “Projekt Face Cartography” by Daniel Boschungand and his Kuka-mounted and -driven camera, which will produce bigger-than-life portraits of the audience during the whole week.
4+5 November 2016 • State Festival • Berlin (DE)
A teaser version of Das Fremde will be presented during STATE Festival. For its second edition, STATE Festival invites scientists, artists, makers, thinkers, doers and the curious public to come together and explore a scientific topic that is of our most personal concern: the state of emotion & the sentimental machine.
Their science-fuelled festival program will combine engaging talks and discussions, thematic films, thought-provoking artworks and performances; with immersive visitor experiences, workshops, installations, and multiple hands on formats to engage with current scientific developments at the intersection of emotions research and artificial intelligence.
