BioMedien. Das Zeitalter der Medien mit lebensähnlichem Verhalten
A man can be seen moving in front of a work of art, interacting with it
EnBW hosts ZKM exhibit
Fri, April 01, 2022 – Sun, July 31, 2022

The exhibition »BioMedia« at the ZKM deals with dynamic systems in art and science that     exhibit life-like behavior. These media use artificial intelligence and generative algorithms to exhibit a wide variety of characteristics of life, far beyond movement, mark the beginning of a new era. In addition to our natural fellow beings, such as plants and animals, humanity is creating new artificial fellow beings. Against the backdrop of the anthropogenic ecological crisis, we have to arrive at the conclusion that life on this planet can only take place in the form of mutual dependencies and entanglements between different life forms, from bacteria to these new artificial entities – that is, in symbiosis.

The exhibition at the ZKM will be spatially extended by a satellite presentation in the foyer of the EnBW headquarters. Four installations will be exhibited that continue different aspects of BioMedia.
