From December 10, 2021 to April 15, 2022, the Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris presents “Decision Making: The Decisive Instant” as part of the official programme of Nemo, the Biennial of Electronic Arts, in partnership with Elektra (Montreal)
Official opening on December 9, starting at 6 pm – Free Access
Decisions are the result of complex cognitive processes. Considering them collectively, as they involve our shared futures, makes them nothing less then crucial. But, more and more often, we include machines into such processes through algorithms qualified as decisional. Of course, it raises questions that artists know how to put into perspective. Because of the age that we are currently living in, a simple instant regarding the whole history of our planet, is decisive considering the choices available to us for a responsible development of Artificial Intelligence.
Therefore, it is now that human rights are at stake, for instance about what will emerge from the use of our personal data. The consideration of artworks coming from decisive processes extracted from the invisible can only spring us into an immediate future that still belongs to us.
Produced by the Canadian Cultural Centre, the exhibition brings together fifteen artists, coming from Canada, Estonia, France, Germany, Norway and Spain.
