A KUKA robot combines sentence components independently

When writing its manifestos, the robot makes use of a predetermined pool of terms from the fields of technology, philosophy and culture. By combining phrases at will, the robot is able to create new and unique manifestos time and again.

The KUKA robot delivers a ceremonial proclamation

The "manifest" exhibit is the brainchild of the "robotlab" group of artists. The title of the exhibit has its roots in the original meaning of the Latin word stemof “manifest”. The role performed by the robot gripper (lat. Manus = hand) is combined with a ceremonial (lat. festus) proclamation.
