Robot Festival is back, ready to celebrate its eleventh edition.
There will be a preview on October 12th, in Palazzo Re Enzo, whereas the festival will take place on October 25th and 26th, in the area of Sala Maggiore (former GAM) and will be concluded on the night of the 26th, with a final event at DumBO.
#BlackBox: scatola nera
The heart of the 2019 ROBOT edition is wondering about the daily activities of a life permeated by the technology. We can be aware of its input and output, but we don’t know its functioning, just like a black box. Actions that nowadays are a condition of our everyday life, such as casually checking the notifications of the social profiles, or listening to a potentially infinite musical flow, thanks to the selection proposed by the algorithm.
Thanks to a strong bond with the territory, that grows stronger as the years go by, the location chosen for this edition go through the past, the present and the future of Bologna. ROBOT 11 is the occasion to relive the former GAM – the historic Modern Art Gallery – located in the Fiera District. This will be the headquarter of the 2019 edition. The preview will be hosted by Salone del Podestà, in a stunning frescoed room on the first floor. DumBO – Casarini street n.19 – is a new area of shared urban regeneration, located within a walking distance from the city center. Its wide industrial spaces are the right location to host the closing party of ROBOT 11.
ROBOT Festival is a project of the Cultural Association Shape, sponsored by Emilia Romagna Region and City of Bologna, in collaboration with Bologna UNESCO City of Music.
