H.A.U.S. – The Robot is Present

Oliver Schürer / H.A.U.S.

H.A.U.S. Performance “The Robot is Present” at Ars Electronica 2017


A visitor is being confronted with this perfect, shiny, white and cute humanoid machine – not in a white cube of abstraction from life, like a museum or a shopping mall. But in a place, grey, narrow, full of things, and traces of labour. It’s about experiencing a confrontation with something alien, in an environment of becoming, transformation, as well as concrete material factuality. To experience what becomes present and where it becomes present, in the space that opens up between two complex and alien agents, that are the human and the humanoid.
