The festival WHEN MACHINES DREAM THE FUTURES is not just the conclusion of the Goethe-Institut’s project “Generation A=Algorithm”, it also marks the opening of the special exhibition “Machine – Learning – Human Dreams” at Deutsches Hygiene-Museum, Dresden.
The exhibition, curated by Yasemin Keskintepe, highlights specifically how the use of AI systems is likely to gradually alter our understanding of everyday life, mobility, work, health, and politics. On 800 m² of exhibition space, cultural-historical exhibits, scientific objects, and contributions as well as audiovisual media will offer all sorts of insights into the current state of AI development, but also how we approach AI. What’s more, the perspectives afforded by the works of international contemporary artists will provide just as many opportunities to reflect on the influence this technology has on our lives. The exhibition will not only look at the dreams of the past and the possibilities and impossibilities of our present but also consider the question of how we intend to use Artificial Intelligence for our own ends in the future.
The Exhibition OnlineAs part of the festival, we provide two online guided tours through the exhibition „Machine – Learning – Human Dreams“. If you are interested you just have to register for the festival. From November 10 to November 15 we present in addition some of the artworks from the exhibition exclusively.
