Description:
A timeless commentary on the nature of human existence – and our future

This comic book adaptation of Karel Čapek’s R.U.R. is an attractive reimagining of a play which has lost nothing of its force since it was first staged in 1921. Apropos, did you know that the word “robot” – invented by Karel Čapek’s brother, the painter and writer Josef Čapek – also first appeared in print a century ago? In his timeless humanist drama, Karel Čapek addresses a number of moral, ethical, and philosophical problems that pertain to human existence. He ponders the very nature of humanity, as well as its relationship to the machine, the question of technological progress, and its role in the future of our societies. The robots in Čapek’s play are not the robots of our time, but rather biological creatures reminiscent of Frankenstein’s monster.
