Love and Robots, 2018, video
Work commissioned by the Niet Normaal Foundation
Army of Love is an artist collective that aims to distribute love more fairly within society. Even in societies where everyone has sufficient and equal access to prosperity, attractiveness is still unevenly distributed. Army of Love fills in the void that arises as a result of this, by sharing love with everyone who needs it. The term ‘army’ has been chosen deliberately; comradeship, conscientiousness and setting a common goal play a major role within the group. For ROBOT LOVE, Alexa Karolinski and Ingo Niermann of Army of Love made a film in Cuba, one of the very last socialist countries in the world, to speculate and exercise with people of diverse age, gender and physiognomy how in a world where all profane tasks are taken by robots, love could become our future labor.
