Phantom Data in our bodies and imagination

LAB ON STAGE: Adriana Torres Topaga, Martyna Lorenc and Andrea Maria Handler

This workshop undertakes a performing arts´ approach. Our departure is the embodiment of imagination and perceptual processes. With somatic exercises and performative games, we notice the data flowing in from our bodies: sensation, image, emotion or memory. Imagination has its own training dataset – therefore a specific priming/bias/imprint. We look for practices of becoming aware of HOW we imagine things and what escapes our field of attention.

Registration required. 12 participants max. Participants may be filmed and photographed. DSGVO

[d/r]econstructing AI: dreams of visionary fiction and zine-making

Nushin Isabelle Yazdani and Internet Teapot: Karla Zavala and Adriaan Odendaal

With this workshop we investigate the structures behind algorithmic decision making systems, discuss why their design is normative, and how AI systems reinforce structural discrimination.

We embark on a speculative journey and discuss how to design to create a more just world. Which artists inspire us? Which values are important to us? We want to collect our thoughts and creative outputs in a zine.

Online workshop via Zoom. Registration required. 24 participants max., thereof in Kepler’s Garden 15 max (bring your laptop); also accessible elsewhere. Registered participants will receive the link to join the workshop. Participants may be filmed and photographed. DSGVO
