As technology moves in the direction of artificial intelligence, the stuff of dreams remains analogue. At least that’s according to founders of Homo Faber. The event is a showcase of European craftsmanship that launches in Venice, Italy on September 14th.
This exhibition is the brainchild of a private nonprofit entity called the Michelangelo Foundation :
Homo Faber is being billed as the biggest event of its kind and is scheduled to take place every two years. Homo Faber will show what humans can do better than the machines.
In the age of digitalisation and artificial intelligence, the exhibit will try to remind the public of the value of the human hand. Homo Faber will show what humans can do better than the machines.
Homo Faber will include 16 thematic pavilions overseen by 13 curators and a vast program including art, virtual reality, fashion and classical music concerts. Visitors will be able to attend live craftmanship demonstrations and workshops.
The event is free to attend and will run until the 30th of September 2018.
