In an increasingly robotized society, you and I explore and discover new technologies. Although robotics and artificial intelligence can help humans and nature, they also often generate fear, because they threaten to overpower us… The event Homo Roboticus event, organised by VUB, takes place at La Monnaie on Thursday evening, 7 February 2019 to address the synergies between man, technology, science & art.

Art and science both arise from creative and critical thinking. They both want to understand the world as it is as well as contribute to the development and creation of our future. Artists and academics go through a similar process, albeit from radically different frames of reference. This is precisely why La Monnaie and the VUB want to collaborate more intensively and bring Homo Roboticus to life, an event where robots and people will share the stage.

The event Homo Roboticus event takes place at La Monnaie on Thursday evening, 7 February 2019. What can you expect? A program consisting of dance performances, inspiring presentations, artistic interventions and demonstrations. The event will be held in English.
