-Can we learn from robots about Love?

Ine Gevers

Robot Love is an interactive expo experience exploring the love between humans and robots. More than 60 artists, designers and scientists ask whether robots are capable of love. And, if you can love them. Wander through the special building and discover what you really feel and think about the influence of technology and innovation on our society. A large number of artworks were made specifically for Robot Love.
Can you share love with robots?
Who or what do you love in a world in which robotics and artificial intelligence are on the rise? Where man and machine increasingly merge with each other in everyday life.
Be surprised
Step into a world where walls literally come alive and where robots and avatars engage in conversation with you. Discover the countless possibilities that artificial intelligence offers and live, breathe and move with it.
You own the future

Should we be afraid of robots that behave like humans? Or rather for people who behave like robots? Re-invent society during this expo experience with countless events, and share your love, intelligence and awareness with others.

ROBOT LOVE presents a highly topical theme: what does it mean to be human and to love in the context of robotics and Artificial Intelligence (AI), and how to preserve certain distinctive qualities while we are merging with machines? There is already a tendency to see ourselves as quantitative machines. Meanwhile, in order to become human aware, robots need to incorporate typical human qualities. Qualities such as emotion, intuition, and most of all love. Now that human-like machines are entering the domestic sphere, AI may act as a mirror allowing us to delve deeper into ourselves and the current state of society. ROBOT LOVE, combining art, neuroscience, robotics and ethics, is like a force from the future we cannot yet grasp, but urges us to ask: can we learn from robots about love?

This lavishly illustrated book accompanies the ROBOT LOVE exhibition presenting the work of 60 international artists working at the cutting edge of art, technology and social change, including Matthew Barney, Roger Hiorns, Hito Steyerl, Philippe Parreno , L. A. Raeven. Renowned scientists and authors such as Margaret Atwood, Reza Negarestani, Katarina Kolozova and Tobias Revell contribute with exploratory and persuasive essays. They make us aware of science fiction becoming science fact.

Ine Gevers, artistic director of the Niet Normaal Foundation, is the driving force behind both the exhibition and the book. Previous editions: Hacking Habitat, Yes Naturally, Difference on Display.
The editorial board further consists of: Klaas Kuitenbrouwer, Martijntje Smits en Iris van der Tuin.
Design: Autobahn Studio

The exposition guide is like the big book very well made and gives in clear chapters the information on all the works in the exposition.
Good to take it with you on the tour, also to find the works in this large building where the exposition spreads over 3 floors.
