Workshop Decode AI

create your world Tour

Decode AI Workshop © Leo Mühlfeld

We bring current topics from art, technology and society directly into the classroom!

Students and teachers have direct access to content that is currently of interest to artists and thinkers from the entire Ars Electronica network. Interactive methods, new technologies and materials as well as artistic positions are prepared for the classroom and presented, discussed and applied in workshops, lectures and other formats in schools.

A joint learning process is launched and a foundation laid for lasting inspiration for both learners and educators alike. On the one hand, the open form of education serves as motivation here, on the other hand, the fun and the “do-it-yourself” principle is paramount and automatically brings increased receptiveness to the children and young people.

Thinking together about what’s actually going on behind the moon, discussing about your own expectations of artificial intelligence with programmers, becoming part of a fantastic universe with a visual artist, slipping into the role of a cyberpunk activist or getting creative yourself with new software and hardware – the tour might bring all this and more into your classroom!
