In The Promise of Total Automation, artists examine technology in its complexity. They point out our fascination with technology as well as the rational and irrational fears and expectations that arise alongside automation. Production machines, technological devices, videos, pictures, sculptures and installations are set up to relate to one another in the exhibition space. In the interplay of all the objects, the exhibition itself becomes a narrating machine that reports on an archaeology of the digital age and the utopias of a technological future.
The Promise Of Total Automation was on show in 2016 at Kunsthalle Wien Museumsquartier.
