Siniša Labrović: ROBOTS, a radio play

Community Radio Tbilisi

Public Art Platform, Tbilisi, Georgia

The radio drama we are about to perform belongs to the genre of dystopian crime story. We live in a world of intensified control and surveillance techniques, and capitalism that has won the whole world increases the difference between the poor and the rich. These are worlds that no longer meet each other in everyday life. The frustration and anger that may be growing among the poor can be less and less directed against the conditions and system that cause this situation. It is especially unthinkable that the poor could organize themselves and rebel against the rich. For comfort, they can have fun on the weekends, they can admire and envy the rich, and if they are talented and hardworking, they can even become rich themselves. But it’s impossible to think that anything can be changed. Man is no longer sacred, sacred is property. Psychopathies growing in these conditions can be used to prevent any solidarity among the poor and to further earn money for the rich at the same time.
