Drag Queens, Drag Kings, Drag Things and Artificial Intelligence….
Enter the world of The Zizi Show (2020), a Deepfake drag cabaret, an online virtual stage featuring a groundbreaking new show with a difference. It features acts constructed using deepfake technology that learn how to do drag by watching a group of human performers. The Zizi Show takes apart one of the prevailing myths about AI, the notion that “an AI” is something we might mistake for a person. Artist Jake Elwes will continue to reflect on questions of identity and the artificial with registered participants.
The European ARTificial Intelligence Lab centers visions, expectations and fears that we associate with the conception of a future, all-encompassing artificial intelligence. An extensive activity programme on AI Lab projects is going to happen during all festival days. Following selected Journeys and conferences, we’d like to offer the opportunity to get in touch with artists critically exploring AI in their work and using AI models as medium of their artistic expression, and deepen the many perspectives possible on this present technology.
This event provides an open space for discussion and Q+A with the expert participants as well as sharing insights from your own practice and projects.
All times are CEST (UTC +2).
