Robots like a mirror of man, like his prosthesis, like his nemesis. From the industry where robots have gradually replaced human work, to biomedical engineering where robotics has managed to create increasingly advanced prostheses up to areas such as war, the environment or even our personal relationships, technology has always entered more in contact with our lives by establishing the coexistence between man and robot as a fact.
In a historical and compelling reconstruction of the relationship between man and technology, the exhibition highlights the charm that its double technology has always exercised on man since ancient times. The first mechanical devices of ancient Greece as well as Leonardo’s machines and his anatomical studies reveal how man has always been attracted to the idea of creating his own artificial clone; a suggestion that will inspire numerous authors in the field of literature, art and cinema.
The exhibition “Robot. From ancient automata to contemporary robotics” at Mudec in Milan aims to illustrate the great steps taken by technology, highlighting how the aspiration to create automata similar to man and increasingly diversified skills has conditioned human life fueling his imagination while posing important social, ethical, philosophical and psychological issues.
