How would an artificial intelligence decide as a curator? Will we no longer need curators in the future because AI will take care of everything? Does this make the selection process and thus the exhibition more democratic? Through the experimental use of AI as a co-curator, we would like to pursue these and other questions together.
The MuDA in Zurich is already working with an algorithm that selects artists for the exhibitions. On August 11th nextmuseum.io will host a talk with Alexa Jeanne Kusber, curator at MuDA and Yasemin Keskintepe on the topic of AI and museums. See event
