This workshop focuses on machine arts in the 20th and 21st century. In a time of growing importance of digital technologies, automation and artifical intelligence (AI) the artistic knowledge of machine arts gains importance. Thus, projects of machine arts will be introduced (historically), scrutinised and discussed. Three talks will especially address relations of machine arts to media, production, body and myth.

With Dr. Sandra Reimann, Curator at the Museum Tinguely Basel and Dr. Dominik Landwehr, cultural historian, Migros-Kulturprozent Zurich.

An opening event of the research project Automated Innovations, led by Michael Rottmann.
