Anime’s Human Machines @ The Barbican
Sep 12 – Sep 25 all-day

Japanese animation has embraced robotics, cybernetics and artificial intelligence as major themes. More interestingly, it uses these themes to explore complex moral and social questions: humanity’s responsibility for its actions, response to the other, greed, short-termism, failure to care for the ecosystem that sustains us.
This anime film season examines the challenge of the man-machine interface through eight films, running 12 – 30 September, on various aspects of humanity’s response to technological change.
All films will screen in Japanese with English subtitles.

Anime’s Human Machines is an Official Event of the Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-2020, presented by the Barbican in association with the Japan Foundation, and has been kindly supported by Wellcome and The Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
