TRANS(E)MISSION EXPOSED – exhibition in Prague


Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 19.20.42Towards better human via digital…? – Installations, artist-talk and discussion regarding technologically enhanced life/mind forms in Ex Post Cultural Space in Prague.

Statement 1. The biggest danger for artificial intelligence is the chance, that it will most likely be created and „brought to life“ by average humans.

Statement 2. One of the most false notions of occidental civilization is belief, that technologies are un-human and that those represent chance or threat for new universe bereft of humanity.

Do you agree?

Well one week programme in Expost Gallery Prague will literally be an „installation“ of artificial intelligence. You will have a chance to experience artistic pieces attacking the limits of biological humanity and presenting simulations of personality run by digital engine. Besides, there will be an open discussion panel with experts concerning the ethical limitations of contemporary science research and experimenting, concerning extremity, transgression and actual role of art in this peculiar context.
