 +=== Room for thoughts… ===
 +
 +  * What is the moral of the story?
 +  * Looking at the //​futuristic dystopia// ​ that Metropolis describes, what is your outline of futuristic dystopia? How do you see your future? How do you see our/the worlds technological progress?
 +  *   About the specific set design: How are the differences between the establishment and the working class thematized? Which similarities do you see?
 +  * How did the future look like two years ago? ⇒ [[https://​www.weforum.org/​agenda/​2016/​01/​a-brief-guide-to-the-technologies-changing-world/​|The 7 technologies changing your world]] (World Economic Forum)

 +  * A future that never has arrived? Do you think the presence of //​futuristic// ​ machine drawings like the ones you can find in the above links played any role for the development of todays existing machines?
 +  * What is todays equivalent of those futuristic graphics?
 +  * Is there a difference between //​science// ​ and //science fiction//?
 +  * Take a look into the mirror. Which machines control your life? What do you think about that? Are there ways to change things?
