Prepare to meet the future.

This highly interactive exhibition explores the world of artificial intelligence. Examining the boundaries between human and machine, it poses big questions of life itself with which you are invited to engage head-on.

A whole-centre 'festival-style' takeover, the exhibition offers an unprecedented survey of creative and scientific developments in AI. The interactive Data Space demonstrates how AI works and its potential to revolutionise how we live.

Visitors can also experience AI first-hand through new commissions from artists including Joy BuolamwiniMario KlingemannSteve Goodman (Kode9), Lauren McCarthyYoichi Ochiai, Neri Oxman and Lawrence Lek, all of whom use AI as a medium and a force of inspiration in its own right.

This timely exhibition will challenge everyone to think differently about artificial intelligence, and themselves.

Co-produced in collaboration with Groninger Forum.
