Dear All,

I am happy to share open-call announcement for the workshop I run at the Digital Design Weekend at V&A in September:

https://www.vam.ac.uk/blog/museum-life/open-call-the-work-of-art-in-the-age-of-artificial-intelligence-workshop <https://www.vam.ac.uk/blog/museum-life/open-call-the-work-of-art-in-the-age-of-artificial-intelligence-workshop>

“The Work of Art in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” is an artistic research workshop by media art curator Natalia Fuchs and media artist Helena Nikonole. Artificial Intelligence as a concept, neural network as a tool and research-based curatorial solution as an approach - that’s the scope of practice in the workshop.

According to media artist Helena Nikonole, an artistic exploration of the potential possibilities (and also potential risks) of technologies like Artificial Intelligence or Internet of Things is necessary to understand the context of modern technologically and media determined world.

Natalia Fuchs is media art curator that is dealing with historical contexts when curating exhibitions and art projects. From her point of view, it is crucial to see how new media choice for the artist correlates with topological spaces in the history of art. In other words, referencing notion to an external space is her approach to building media art communities stable and persistent; what is reflected in the “The Work of Art in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” which become global research community platform for the artist, curator and technology specialists.

In their original workshop Natalia Fuchs and Helena Nikonole share their experience on contemporary conceptual artistic and curatorial work in the field of media art in relation with Artificial Intelligence. Participants of the workshop are invited to join the research-based practice from exploring intuitive interest in some issue to transforming this interest into the research methodology, followed by the selection of an instrument and a form and art project development. 

In the practical part of the workshop, participants will test specific tools and evaluate their own conceptual ideas regarding artificial intelligence. Everyone who already works with ideas in any creative discipline or wants to start, and is interested in modern tools, including AI, is welcome to participate.
