Robots Universals Rossum
Author: Carlos Be
Can human beings aspire to be anything more than a production machine?
Doctor in Humanities Ziqi Jiang writes: “Carlos Be renews the currency of Karel Čapek’s R.U.R. as a dystopian work. If the mere representation of robots now seems to be topical and unoriginal, Be uses them to question the tendencies of the times that are dehumanising us and converting us into rigid beings: ideological intolerance, censorship, excess of work, hegemony of mass culture and consumerism”.
