erratic weatherBy MAOTIK
This years exhibition program is emphasising and shedding light on the ever growing topic of the human impact on our planet and changes these impacts are having on us and our lives. We believe that art has always been the language that has addressed sensitive themes which have encouraged us to engage with alternative perspectives. In our accelerated lives these topics are mostly not given the time to indulge. Art gives us this time to indulge and with the help of technology that is currently ruling our modern lives in many sectors, it gives artists a new way of expressing themselves. Big data, AI and deep learning are undermining our social behaviour, our morals and our identities, but these technologies in a context with art can also enlighten and help us understand where humanity is heading.
