DIAS presents the solo exhibition entitled 'Den Grønne Ø i Det Røde Hav' (The Green Island in the Red Sea) by SUPERFLEX. The exhibition is made exclusively for DIAS located at Vallensbæk S-train station. It consists of both video and installation and tells a –perhaps– fictional story of the development of the municipality of Vallensbæk, and how it launched a robot-friendly strategy in the beginning of the 1970's. By securing equal rights for robots and humans alike Vallensbæk secured a continuity of political thoughts and lifestyle.
The work takes a look into the future by looking into the past. Through the tale of the rights of robot citizens in Vallensbæk we can discuss new and current challenges such as rights of artificial intelligences, future working conditions and the taxation of the work of robots in a global perspective.
