The Work of Art in The Age of Artificial Intelligence
Within the framework of the CTM 2019 exhibition, conceptual workshop by Natalia Fuchs and Helena Nikonole focused on current notions of Artificial Intelligence in art and culture took place at and in collaboration with Art Laboratory Berlin on March 14-15, 2019.
This conceptual artistic research workshop by media art curator Natalia Fuchs and media artist Helena Nikonole that spans Artificial Intelligence as a concept, neural networks as a tool, and research-based curatorial solution as an approach.

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

Natalia Fuchs is a 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 artists, curators and technology specialists.

In their workshop Natalia and Helena shared their experience on contemporary conceptual artistic and curatorial work in the field of media art in relation with Artificial Intelligence.

Participants were invited to join the research-based practice, starting with exploring intuitive interest in some issue and transforming this interest into research methodology and continuing with the selection of an instrument and form, and finally to art project development.

In the practical part of the workshop, participants studied specific tools and evaluated their own conceptual ideas regarding artificial intelligence.

The workshop was limited to 10 participants and there was international open-call for the workshop at the Art Laboratory Berlin in the frame of CTM festival 2019.
