Online-Vortrag // Christiane Paul: Art & AI – The Question of Intelligence



von 18:30 bis 20:00

Termin übernehmen

In his 1967 poem All Watched Over By Machines Of Loving Grace Richard Brautigan envisioned a cybernetic utopia where humans and computers coexist in a mutually beneficial symbiotic relationship. Whether one reads the poem as utopian or as ironic critique, it is interesting to compare today's complex landscape of human-computer relationships and the ambient artificial intelligence surrounding us to the “programming harmony” Brautigan imagined. Using her recent exhibition The Question of Intelligence – AI and the Future of Humanity as a starting point, Christiane Paul will give a historical overview of the ways in which digital art has critically engaged with the social and cultural transformations brought about by AI, big data, and machine learning. Among the topics addressed will be the inherent biases of artificial intelligence; the impact of AI on labor and data exchange, as well as cultural and knowledge production; and the condition of the technologically expanded body.

Christiane Paul is Chief Curator / Director of the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center and Professor in the School of Media Studies at The New School, as well as Adjunct Curator of Digital Art at the Whitney Museum of American Art. She is the recipient of the Thoma Foundation's 2016 Arts Writing Award in Digital Art, and her recent exhibitions include Programmed: Rules, Codes, and Choreographies in Art 1965 - 2018 (2018/19) at the Whitney Museum and The Question of Intelligence – AI and the Future of Humanity at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at The New School (2020).
