This masterclass is one of a series of our New Skills Program. It comes with big questions in a perfect timing: The bizarre combinations of images, videos, and music generated by Artificial Intelligence algorithms are increasingly entering the common imagination. But this close intersection between art and technology raises several questions: Can a machine create works of art autonomously? If yes, what is the future of artistic production when it is no longer exclusive to humanity? What are the limits and risks, but also the potential, of this type of art?
Let’s start a discussion about it.
Organized by Europe House in Tirana, sponsored by European Council in Albania. An idea of EJAlbum. Curated by Elton Koritari and of course, EJAlbum Team.
