What can the museum of the future look like? The project has been developing artistic AI prototypes for new exhibition concepts since 2020.

In the exhibition works and presentations that can be experienced interactively open up new perspectives for exhibition visitors and become a catalyst for a reflective approach to AI. AI technologies are already present in many areas of our daily lives: voice assistants such as Siri and Alexa, recommendation systems in online stores, autonomous vehicles, AI-based translation tools or intelligent personal assistants. Artists particular raise questions about the future impact of this rapidly evolving technology, explore its potential consequences, and encourage critical thinking about its ethical and societal implications.
