Artistic Journalism 1/3: Understanding AI

Artistic journalism is the act of creating a social dialogue through artistic expression, research, exploration, and action. Artistic journalism is characterized by the creation of opportunities for subjective experience of facts and topics, rather than the transmission of objective facts through the written word.

In today’s age of overflowing visual information such as text and images, what is a new way to listen carefully and think deeply and slowly about facts and issues, rather than simply consuming or reacting to information and news?

The Artistic Journalism is a process of drawing a picture of the future through paying attention to the various creative questions that artists create, precisely because we live in an unstable and unclear age.

In this course, we will create a dialogue with new knowledge that cannot be conveyed by books, newspapers and online media alone, and discuss how to apply this dialogue to future policy, through the activities of Ars Electronica, based in Austria Linz.
