Artificial intelligence – Living with Artificial Intelligence

Today: 12.00 PM - 6.00 PM

09 May 2019 - 11 August 2019

The international group exhibition is dedicated to the current topic of artificial intelligence and the pervasive presence of intelligent and learning algorithms and machines in our networked world. Works by artists grappling with the impacts of artificial intelligence on society and its networked systems will be shown. Not least, the exhibited works will provide new aesthetic approaches emerging from the creative examination of the newest developments in generative algorithms and machine learning.
