In “Robert Robur”, serious reflections on the insidious trap that technological progress sets up for us are interwoven with numerous pop-culture games and references. The aesthetic of the depicted world is very much defined by campy exaggeration. And playing with cinematic associations and literary tropes, in addition to providing outstanding entertainment value, is used here to create a coherent, dystopian vision of a future that is, quite unexpectedly, already here. Presented at The New School, New York.
