From April 1st to June 10th, as the opening of the 2022 edition of its Festival of Digital Humanities, Kiasma invites you to (re)discover “Human Learning. What Machines Teach Us“: an exhibition originally conceived and produced for the Canadian Cultural Centre in 2020, and presented here in a new version specially recreated for the Kiasma!
We have taught machines everything. Today, they learn by themselves: this is “machine learning”. More and more artists are collaborating with machines to create their artworks. Isn’t it time to consider the value of teaching machines of all kinds, as artists exploit their creative potentials and the imaginaries and aesthetics they produce?
“Human Learning. What Machines Teach Us” documents the world through the technologies that shape it. The works brought together offer a great diversity of writing: interactive installations inducing us to apprehend their playability, generative installations whose processes are totally autonomous… Would dedicating an exhibition to machines and the ideas or aesthetics that emerge from them almost amount to accepting their teachings?
Works by Emilie Brout & Maxime Marion, Douglas Coupland, Chun Hua Catherine Dong, Justine Emard, Samuel St-Aubin, Xavier Snelgrove & Mattie Tesfaldet.
The Canadian Cultural Centre in Paris is a partner of this exhibition.
