Workshop: AI Infrastructures for Civil Society and the Arts

Online | Registration required

As part of the event program of the exhibition House of Mirrors: Artificial Intelligence as Phantasm the HMKV cordially invites you to the online workshop AI infrastructures for civil society and art.

The one-day workshop explores the thesis that a civil society AI infrastructure is needed that provides computational capacities and processes for the fields of art, human rights, ecology and political activism as a public service. A number of people have been invited to highlight various aspects of civil and artistic AI infrastructure in keynote speeches and to discuss them afterwards. The symposium results from the observation that many artists active in the field of artificial intelligence are dependent on the infrastructures of Google, Amazon and Nvidia, and that a public AI infrastructure does not yet exist in Germany.

The workshop will consist of a series of keynote speeches followed by a discussion. A number of speakers have been invited to give short presentations on problems and case studies. Interested members of the public can participate by video conference if they register in advance.

With: Inke Arns, Dominik Bönisch, Julie Boschat-Thorez, Cristina Cochior, Ariana Dongus, Eva Feuchter, Adam Harvey, Francis Hunger, Marie Lechner, Rosemary Lee, Sarah Grant, Katharina Meyer, Paul Keller, Lorena Jaume-Palasi
