Golem was a powerful and semi-autonomous creature from clay designed by one of our first makers, the 16th century rabbi of Prague, Judah Loew ben Bezalel. Rabbi Loew was one of the first makers to face a very modern dilemma: how to make our autonomous and powerful technologies not only efficient and obedient, but also ethically and morally responsible and aesthetically pleasing and fun?
Join us in June 2019 in Prague to respond to this challenge and meet the present day mechanical artists and alchemists that question the limits between technology, nature and culture. Who or what are the golems today? How do we build them, but also dismantle, improve and debug?
