How do we advance technology without giving up our sense of humanity?
What does it mean to become / be obsolete?
In times of the pandemic, we rely increasingly on technology. But are we going to be overthrown by robots and algorithms? Is this a sci-fi fantasy or a reality?
Suzon invited six artists from different cultures to respond in their own languages to these questions.
