as part of the Goethe-Institut Toronto‘s Algorithmic Culture project
The Goethe-Institut Toronto is committed to engaging with diverse voices to determine new pathways in exploring AI’s impact on the future of culture in a 2021-22 program called Algorithmic Cultures. Workshops, podcasts, ‘zines and residencies will connect artists, experts, and audiences between Berlin and Toronto, Canada and Germany, Europe and the world.
