Abstract zum Thema des Kolloquiums

Arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence (AI) is pro­foundly trans­form­ing both artist­ic cre­ation and its teach­ing, rede­fin­ing the con­cepts of cre­ativ­ity and the role of the artist. In the realm of visu­al art pro­duc­tion, AI facil­it­ates the rap­id and eco­nom­ic­al gen­er­a­tion of works through algorithms that learn and rep­lic­ate artist­ic styles, rais­ing ques­tions not only about the legit­im­acy of AI as a co-cre­at­or but also about the future of plastic and visu­al cre­ation. Addi­tion­ally, AI can enable new forms of col­lab­or­a­tion and artist­ic explor­a­tion, demo­crat­iz­ing access to the visu­al and sym­bol­ic pro­duc­tion that char­ac­ter­izes art. The rap­id devel­op­ment of AI has sig­ni­fic­antly impacted the basis of artist­ic cre­ation, pos­ing ques­tions about the future of Visu­al Art in a world where tech­no­logy plays an increas­ingly cent­ral role in cre­at­ive processes.

Import­ant: The lan­guage for the col­loqui­um and the talk will be English.
