AI and Art: This Changes Everything?

Welcome to attend an online seminar where an international panel of scholars will discuss AI and its implications in the art world.

Time: January 17, 2024, 14:00–15:30
Location: Zoom
Registration: Register here

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning are undeniably reshaping the art world. But is this technological transformation unique in its scale? Discussions often emphasize the newness and unpredictability of AI’s impact. Yet, art and its realms have consistently been closely linked to the emergence and disruption of new technologies.

Join us for a discussion on AI in art:

  • How is AI disrupting the creation, production, distribution and consumption of art?
  • What can we learn from art history about moments of great technological change?
  • And what can we envision for the future of AI and art?

Our four panelists who will lead the discussion are Anne Ploin, University of Oxford, Andre Holzapfel, KTH, Joanna Zylinska, King’s College London, and Leonardo Salvador Arriagada Beltrán, University of Groningen and University of Chile.

Questions? Please contact Henrik Fürst or Laura Harris.
