discussion.Admission freeSoftly, softly, they are tiptoeing into our lives. They work more efficiently than we; they entertain our children; they drive
cars more carefully than we; and they are better medical doctors. And we love them to do these things for us! For after all,
they are our creations: simply docile machines that make our lives easier. More efficient dish-washers, so to speak. Or is
there more to it than that?Panel members:Jörg Leichtfried (Federal Minister for Transport, Innovation, and Technology), Paul Feigelfeld (Media Theorist), and Amelie Klein (Curator, Vitra Design Museum). The discussion will be moderated by Christoph Thun-Hohenstein (General Director, MAK).The event is taking place on the occasion of the VIENNA BIENNALE 2017: Robots. Work.

The MAK FUTURE LAB is a creative laboratory founded by the MAK – Austrian Museum of Applied Arts / Contemporary Art. Through workshops, lectures,
panel discussions, and other formats the MAK FUTURE LAB generates interdisciplinary contributions to a humane shaping and
utilization of Digital Modernity. It positions design, architecture, and fine art as driving forces of socially, ecologically,
culturally, and economically sustainable market economy models. Through diverse cooperations, it networks these creative sectors
with the fields of science, research, business, and politics. The MAK FUTURE LAB aspires to develop both holistic orientation
models and strategies for the commons inspired by such models, as well as concrete, innovative business ideas for the future.
