AM I A ROBOT?*
May 29, 2022 @ 20:00 - 21:00
‘Tonight, we would like to hear a loud and enthusiastic applause for our very special guest Sophia.’ ‘Sophia, how are you tonight?’
Funny, uncomfortable, provoking, sometimes with a delay, Sophia answers questions. Inspired by a true story, “AM I A ROBOT?*” invites you to encounter SOPHIA. She is a social humanoid robot that was activated on February 14, 2016 and is the first robot to receive citizenship of any country. AM I A ROBOT?* is a documentary show on the edge: an inappropriate circus demonstration to question our capability for empathy and explore our repetitive failure to recognise the rights of what is perceived as otherness.
“Talk show, AI, post-human, racism, robotics, ethics, starification. We miss one word.. Empathy. How did we forget to be human?” K&A
