Speculum Artium

Sept 20 - Sept 23

More than 20 projects combining art, science and technology with topical issues ranging from pollution to human alienation will be featured at the 15th iteration of Speculum Artium, a festival of new media, in the former mining town of Trbovlje.

One of the highlights will be a concert by Compressorhead, an animatronic robot band created by Berlin-based artist Frank Barnes and collaborators Markus Kolb, Stock Plum, and John and Rob Wright, former members of the band NoMeansNo. The robots, recycled from machine parts, perform adaptations of punck rock and metal music by Motörhead, AC/DC, Pantera and the Ramones.
