Forum for AI in Art & Design

Author: Tessa Breuer

CORRELATIONS is an interdisciplinary event gathering creatives, experts, as well as curious non-experts for an exchange on Artificial Intelligence. Over 2.5 days, KITeGG will provide a forum for critical reflection, knowledge and skill sharing, and discussions on the use of AI as a creative tool. With a series of lectures, workshops, performances, and an exhibition, they invite visitors to explore different “intelligent” systems in creative contexts and learn about their relevance and impact on our world.

The forum is held by KITeGG, a 4-year research project on AI in Art and Design, and is the second in a series of eight summer and winter schools between 2022 and 2025. The next event takes place in Schwäbisch Gmünd in spring 2023.

With contributions by Jenifer Becker, Joscha Berg, Entangled Others (Sofia Crespo & Feileacan McCormick), Moíses Horta Valenzuela (Hexorcismos), So Kanno, Jannis Maroscheck, Björn Ommer, alla popp & Janne Kummer aka Alaska, Aeneas Stankowski & Rahel Flechtner, and more.

How are personal or mass-media image archives transformed via machine learning models into a new, surprising—or perhaps all too familiar—artistic-creative language? How much statistics is there in aesthetics? And to what extent can AI-based algorithms be used as tools for creative research that continues a self-reflected experimental tradition of media art without immediately squinting at the product?

The exhibition presents works by students of the University of Art and Design Offenbach and the KITEGG partner universities, which have been created in an examination of these socially relevant topics. Next to the results of searching for new visual form languages based on generative modeling, experiments in the fields of sound synthesis, and the conceptual processing of mass media content will be shown.

The exhibition features works by Malik Arbab, Elisa Deutloff, Lea Endres, Johannes Growe, Younes Jaafari, Jenny Kasper, Max Kreis, Bastian Kämmer, Nassim L’Ghoul, Anastasia Ruchkina, Lisa Marleen & Laura Juliane, Yalu Moreta.
