SPOTSHOTBEUYS brings together urban-contemporary dancer Silke Grabinger and “Spot,” the robotic dog developed by Boston Dynamics, processes the current relationship between humans and technology against the backdrop of Joseph Beuys’ performance I like America and America likes me. Although the dog is no longer symbolically the original nature like the coyote, but rather the result of the currently most advanced culture, the relationship to it is not dissimilar, except the role of mediating between dog and human now asserts itself in its own autonomy. In this context, the roles must be questioned more than ever – from whom does the danger emanate, who controls whom, or who can/must be tamed by whom?
