Smile Machines. María Morata

Akademie der Künste, Berlin
From the 3rd of February to the 19th of March 2006

A useless amiable robot reacts awkwardly to the presence of visitors, almost as if it were looking for someone to stroke it. Another starts to get exasperated, the more people try to help it, and a mechanical, ramshackle mobile, made of mundane objects, turns over waste material and moves it around. Petit mal by Simon Penny, Helpless Robot by Norman White, or Remue-mènage by Jean-Pierre Gauthier are just some of the works that members of the public had to deal with on their visit to Smile Machines. The exhibition, curated by the art historian and lecturer at the University of Paris I, Anne-Marie Duguet, opened this February at the transmediale. 06. Festival for art and digital culture in Berlin.
