Marco Donnarumma Award Show

Marco Donnarumma Award Show


Marco Donnarumma is awarded Artist of Science Year 2018 by German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and WiD. The artist, originally from Italy, is a Research Fellow at the Berlin University of the Arts (UDK) in cooperation with the Neurobotics Research Lab Berlin. He expresses his artistic view on the Working Life of the Future in his human limb-like Amygdala. The artificially intelligent arm provokes unease when watching it learn an ancient purification ritual on its own skin. A fear comes to the surface that is caused by machines evolving from tools to fellow beings. Donnarumma's captivating visions of the body have already toured more than 60 countries. His music performance Corpus Nil won second prize of Prix Ars Electronica Award of Distinction for Sound Art in 2017.

Amygdala is an artwork by Marco Donnarumma, in collaboration with the Neurorobotics Research Laboratory (DE) and Ana Rajcevic (DE).

The event takes place as part of the ongoing exhibition Field Experiments.
The artist will be present.
