House of Mirrors: Artificial Intelligence as Phantasm

The exhibition House of Mirrors: Artificial Intelligence as Phantasm takes the common clichés about AI as an opportunity to talk about issues such as hidden human labor, algorithmic bias/discrimination, the problem of categorization and classification, and our fantasies about AI. It asks whether (and how) it is possible for us to reclaim agency in this context. Featuring more than 20 artistic works by international artists, the exhibition is divided into seven thematic chapters. The scenography of the exhibition is reminiscent of a giant house of mirrors. In May 2022, a 200-page bilingual catalogue will be published (German/English) as printed matter and as a free online PDF.

“Enter the hall of mirrors, which reflects human reality, sometimes in direct reflections, sometimes in a distorting mirror, sometimes through a glass pane that promises transparency or a semi-transparent mirror that reflects on one side and is translucent on the other.” —Curators Inke Arns, Marie Lechner, and Francis Hunger
