Are computers able to think? Do machines have a mind or even have emotions? What happens if algorithms make decisions in our place? The exhibition “(Artificial Intelligence) Digitale Demenz” explores the relationship between contemporary art and artificial intelligence.

About

In 1996 IBM created a chess computer called Deep Blue, which defeated Garri Kasparow and was seen as an historic milestone. Humanity was defeated by a computer and started to question: “When will computers take over control?” As always we are fascinated by the potential of new technological developments, but at the same time we fear them. Just think of HAL 9000, a computer in 2001: Odysee im Weltraum (1968): He decides to kill the crew of the spaceship that he is operating. To communicate with computers, let them make their own decisions and accept that they have a mind, ideas, thoughts and maybe even have emotions – all that is combined in the exhibition and asks a simple question: Where does science end and where does fiction start?

Curated by Thibaut de Ruyter (Berlin).

The exhibition is a production of the EIGEN + ART Lab (Berlin).
