A collaboration with Francisco Carolinum, Zirkus des Wissens and Boston Dynamics Spot of the Institute of Robotics at the Johannes Kepler University Linz and SILK KLISCOPE. With the kind support of the Johanniter Wien
Is technology “a bitch”? Or, more generally, a dog? Contemporary dancer Silke “Silk” Grabinger spends three times 150 minutes in an installation with the (in)famous robot dog model “Spot” from Boston Dynamics. The central question of this confrontation between human and machine is: Who is taming whom? The artistic “prequel” to SPOTSHOTBEUYS has become a classic: fifty years ago exactly, actionist artist Joseph Beuys flew to New York, drove in an ambulance from the airport to René Block Gallery and spent three days and three nights there in a cage together with a coyote. Grabinger responds to this performance, entitled I Like America, and America Likes Me with a highly topical reimagining in which technology demonstrates its superiority as a second nature.
