"Robot Morph" by Christoph Niemann

Science fiction becomes reality: robotics has been finding its way into our lives for a number of years now. Examples range from transport drones and intelligent sensors to the debate around Industry 4.0. In the exhibition Hello, Robot. Design between Human and Machine, the Vitra Design Museum will thoroughly examine the current robotics boom for the first time. The exhibition will present a variety of exhibits, including examples of robots from homes, industry or medicine, but also media installations, computer games and examples from film and literature. It will demonstrate how robotics is changing our lives today – and how design is changing robotics. At the same time, it broadens our view of the ethical and political issues associated with robotics today. The show features more than 150 exhibits including works by Bruce Sterling, Douglas Coupland, Joris Laarman, Carlo Ratti, Dunne & Raby, Philip Beesley as well as IXDM’s Susanna Hertrich.
