This year’s ART+TECH Festival, codenamed #ARTOBOTS, examines the ever expanding and ever more tangible sphere of robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence. Through art, discussion, play and performance, CODAME probes these potentials.
By day, an interdisciplinary gathering of innovators will give workshops and lectures on the field's urgent questions and latest developments. By night, we will wander the imaginative terrain of interactive installations and performance.
