Occulto 7: Art-I-Ficial

Tilted poplar trees trying to straighten up in a lab, Alan Turing’s jokes and prophecies, a 18th century machine that utters “MA-MA”, the discarding of the words “discernible”, “underwear” and “sphagnum” as waste, the portrait of a machine learning system as a botanical artist, self-delusion at the service of the secret services.

Kapsel – Das verlorene Paradies

On January 18, 2020, the third event of the Kapsel series in Acud will be introduced by a community afternoon. Occulto will be part of it and, at 5 pm, take over the stage for about 20 minutes with a – for us pretty experimental and unusual – mix of talk, reading and performance.

Occulto 6: Life

Fake nutial pads, fantastic mice with French names, super-intelligent dogs, “green cure” cod, incredibily ancient fossils, funny cephalopods, and, of course, Darwin. Let’s get ready for a post-human world together!

Kapsel – Ne Zha, der Schutzgott

Alice Cannava will moderate the second panel of the five-episode Kapsel series at Acud. We’ll discuss AI from technical, historical and cultural perspectives, focusing on everyday life, science-fiction literature and China.
