Art, Technology and Science

Art as a critical thinker’s “second opinion” on digital revolution

More detailed information

Many artists work with scientists, technologists, designers, developers, entrepreneurs and activists from all over the world, to address the central questions of our future. Their focus is on new technologies and how they change the way we live and work together.  

Since the seventies, our world has changed radically, and digitization has covered almost all areas of our lives. Scientists, developers, designers, entrepreneurs, activists and artists have shed light on these developments in our digital society and have speculated about their manifestations in the future.   

The activities of artists involved in technology are always guided by the question of what new technologies mean for our lives.  They not only  ask what technology can or will be able to do, but always what it should do for us. They don’t try to adapt to technology, but they want the development of technology to be oriented towards us. Therefore, the artistic research always focuses on ourselves, our needs, our desires, our feelings.  

With Machine Learning and AI, we are initiating the transition from automation to autonomy today. The digital becomes independent for the first time. On the threshold of this new era, we must set the course for our digital society to remain committed to fundamental values such as human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and human rights. Artists together with scientists, developers, designers, entrepreneurs and activists from all over the world want to contribute to such a digital humanism.  

In a workshop or presentation about art and technology we will discuss and zoom in on artist who work and experiment with AI, VR, robots, augmented reality, security camera’s, meta-verse, quantum computing, biotech, 3D sound, computational creativity and other technological evolutions.  

This interaction between art and science&technology is also called the "new renaissance" or the avant-garde in the arts.
