Alum Trevor Paglen Exhibited in Frankfurter Kunstverein

Paglen is one of the artists featured at "I am here to learn: On Machinic Interpretations of the World," at Frankfurter Kunstverein. The exhibit will run from February 15 - April 8, 2018.

From the website:

"The thematically organized group exhibition 'I am here to learn' addresses adaptive algorithms and artificial intelligence (AI). The exhibition focuses on perception and interpretation as human qualities, which machines can acquire through learning procedures. The Frankfurter Kunstverein will present international artists, whose work thematizes the processes involved in machine perception and autonomous action.

"The exhibition ... investigates art’s role in a field influenced by specialist technicians, market interests, and increasingly privatized research, which, in turn, influence and alter numerous sections of our society. What does the phrase “I am” mean, if it comes from a machinic entity? What does 'I am here' mean, if artificial intelligence has no body through which to position itself in the world?"
