Christian Boltanski: Erinnerungen | Souvenirs | Memories

Christian Boltanski was also inspired by the daily work performed by the ironworkers and has dedicated a large temporary installation to them and their emotions. In addition to the forced labour memorial site, he has created a major installation in memory of the workers at Völklinger Hütte. Located in the 800-square-metre ore shed, this installation comprises ninety-one atmospherically illuminated lockers from all parts of the ironworks. The voices of former ironworkers recalling their work at Völklinger Hütte resonate from the lockers.

Robots: hopes and fears – evening panel discussion

There are many ways in which robots could improve healthcare and wellbeing: robotic surgeons are already being used in highly intricate operations, including to treat patients with pancreatic and kidney cancer; in our aging society, robots could help to care for the elderly with humanoid carers; while the many people who are unable to drive for health reasons could find greater independence thanks to driverless cars.
