The Influencing Machine

1 December 2018-20 January 2019 Opening: 30 November 2018 Bots (from 'robot' and Czech 'robota', socage, forced labor) are inconspicuous computer programs that perform tasks automatically. Bots manipulate the masses, turn 'fake news' into facts, supersede human labour, colonise our objects and lead us into temptation: Based on digital code, bots perform thousands of minute routines which supplement and at times displace human agency and labour, thus shaping virtual and analog structures.
