 The project The Robot is present confronts the audience with two totally different kinds of robots, and with different kinds of artificial intelligence. With this investigation the project want to open up a discussion of two things: The reproductiveness of performance not as a copy but as difference and repetition. The production of presence, not of livliness but as a meta level of embodiment. ​ The project The Robot is present confronts the audience with two totally different kinds of robots, and with different kinds of artificial intelligence.

 In direct interactions,​ or interactions via the media, you often have a „noticeable presence“,​ that can be emotionally experienced and perceived. Animals too can radiate presence, or an antiquarian object, through the traces of former usage. But what is present in a counterpart,​ be it a human, an animal or an object? Humanoid robots and artificial intelligence are among the most vividly discussed new technologies,​ constructed and imagined for direct interaction,​ communication. Individualised,​ adjusted to its counterpart,​ these technologies are the most appropriate to make presence tangible, but can an artificial intelligence have a presence at all? In direct interactions,​ or interactions via the media, you often have a „noticeable presence“,​ that can be emotionally experienced and perceived.
