BASEL.- The Museum Tinguely in Basel and Kunsthaus Graz are
co
organising an exhibition that addresses the subjects of “Artificial
Intelligence” and “Robotics”. The title Robot Dreams is borrowed from a
short
story of the same name by Isaac Asimov, a biochemist and extraordinarily

prolific writer of science fiction, in which Elvex, a robot, has to be
destroyed
because he has a dream in which he plans a revolt and starts to
disregard the
Three Laws that are intended to keep him subservient to humans. On
exhibition 9
June through 12 September.
