Impakt at Meta Marathon 2019: Robotics 15 - 17 March 2019

21:00 - 12:30

Live and work, celebrate and drink, love and laugh 42 hours non-stop with robots: The Meta Marathon 2019 from 15 to 17 March 2019 will be dedicated to the topic of robotics and will transform the NRW-Forum Düsseldorf into a laboratory for a whole weekend.

In workshops, talks, performances and art projects, we will immerse ourselves in the near future: when machines are taken from factories into everyday life, completely new processes are automated. But who then serves whom? How do we interact with these non-human agents? What must society be prepared for when automated processes are carried out by robotized entities and decisions are made without human intervention?

Meta is an invitation to the participants to take part in an open process and to jointly develop new ideas on digital modernity and robotics. In a 42-hour marathon, Meta focuses on partially radically explorative methods such as microdosing or mind hacking. Meta wants to leave the classical framework of a conference far behind and invites all participants to stay overnight in the NRW-Forum.

The Meta Marathon 2019 takes place in cooperation with Tanzhaus NRW, Impakt Festival & Meta is supported by the Beisheim Foundation, the Innogy Foundation, KomKuk, Warsteiner and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
