KIKK 2023: Navigating new flows between arts, technology, science and culture

Il tema del festival, “Bodies of Waters”, pone l’attenzione sulla miriade di flussi visibili e invisibili in cui si muovono i corpi, dagli ambienti biologici ai contesti finanziari astratti. La metafora dell’acqua diventa la chiave di combinazione tra diverse prospettive e avvia una discussione tra artisti, relatori e partecipanti. Iniziando con due feste d’inaugurazione accompagnate da conferenze e mostre, il festival accoglie i visitatori con un’atmosfera dinamica, invitando il pubblico alla scoperta di prospettive alternative e ad essere aperti a nuovi incontri....

The graduate exhibition has something ambivalent about it. As fixed as the annual date might be in the city’s cultural calendar, the exhibition also runs counter to everyday life at the Kunsthochschule. Like the ebb and flow of the tide, EXAMEN marks a cycle with unforeseen dimensions. For the graduates it marks the symbolic end of their studies and a metamorphosis. There is a similarity to particles in quantum physics, simultaneously behaving as particles and as waves whose potential is still unexplored. ... READ MORE...

The Only Lasting Truth is Change

We take as our starting point the multiple readings of “hallucination”—from the perception of something that is not really there, to a terminology of glitches within large language models, and to a description of a clash between different epistemologies. We will look for the various intersections between the artificial and the real—between large scale statistics and local knowledge... READ MORE...

Connecting

Until recently, digital tools were nothing more than translations of physical applications: mail became e-mail, shopping increasingly happened online, banks funneled people to their apps.
