REFLECTIONS/TÆNKEPAUSER LIVE: WELFARE

Denmark is characterised by equality, only a few people are extremely rich or extremely poor, and everyone is entitled to great welfare. It is almost too good to be true, and, according to Carsten Jensen, professor of political science at Aarhus University, who has written the book Welfare, it is too good to be true. The pretty picture of the Danish welfare state begins to fall apart when you look at it closely: We love welfare and are happy to pay to get even more of it. But only when it comes to the aspects of welfare which we benefit from personally. All those who don’t subscribe to the idea of traditional Danish family life are left to their own devices.

Get a new perspective on welfare when Nørrebro Teater presents a science monologue based on Carsten Jensen’s book from the Reflections series. The monologue will be performed by actress Özlem Saglanmak and directed by Anna Schulin-Zeuthen

MEET THE ROBOTS NORMA AND SILBOT

Get your chance to say hello to the two robots Norma and Silbot. Norma is a so called humanoid robot, who speaks and knows the difference between boys and girls. She can tell you who she is and be your friend. Silbot is a korean robot for training of the many functions of the brain.
Find out more about the robots living in the Municipality of Aarhus and what their job is at the MatchPoints Seminar Thursdag evening.
