He deals with one of today’s most pressing issues: the role and position of man in today’s time dominated by digital technologies, radically changing the relationship between man and machine and the position of the individual within society.

The production of the project is signed by Olga Majcen Linn and Tereza Teklić from KONTEJNER and Diego Carpentier, the producer of the Venice Pavilion.
Irma Omerzo is a choreography consultant, and Tomislav Pokrajčić is the leader of the technical production realised by Jan Šnajder, Ana Barić and Sara Bakić from TakeLab, from the Faculty of Electronics and Computing, University of Zagreb.
The Mondriaan Fonds Foundation supported the project, along with the Ministry of Science and Education of the Republic of Croatia and the Zagreb Tourist Board, Mato Perić and the Perić Collection, as well as the Art Explore residence in Paris.
