CURATING ONLINE: Cultural Heritage, Creativity and the Summer of Artificial Intelligence
7. 12. 2021 14:00 – 18:00
A one-day international symposium and subsequent debate of experts, academics, curators, artists who are exploring the potential of using artificial intelligence (deep learning of artificial neural networks) for processing and sharing of the content of art collections; for mapping of the digital culture; and for testing of an artificial intelligence as a medium of creative practice (AI art).
The symposium aims to inquire into the current trends in the field of archives processing ("live archive"), new forms of the concept of "artificial art" (Abraham Moles) and manifestations of an aesthetics of remix (Eduardo Navas) or "crowdsourced beauty" (Joanna Zylinska) in the context of the current "summer of Artificial Intelligence".
The conference is organized on the occasion of the completion of the Media Art Live Archive project.
The symposium will take place in the studio of the Brno House of Arts: Due to security measures against Covid-19, its capacity will be limited to twenty visitors, who must make the reservation for their place in advance GoOut (soon to be specified). For others, there will be an online stream on Facebook Vasulka Kitchen Brno.
