Future Human

Future Humanexplores the intersection between artificial intelligence and humanity, posing questions about what it means to be human and a citizen in the digital age.

As machine learning and artificial intelligence start to exceed human comprehension, will we be able to seize this opportunity to create bias-free AI or will these machines always replicate our own gender, race and class biases? To what extent is data profiling affecting the ways we reflect back on human identity and citizenship?

In a time when tech companies are competing to build humanised robots and anthropomorphise existing AI: what does this say about the future of humanity and what we define as human? Who, or what, will be granted the rights of citizenship in the era of AI?

The Art + Tech team are seeking artists who are already pushing the boundaries of technological innovation within their practice and whose work engages with these critical ideas and themes.

Selected artists receive:
- 24-hour access to a studio at SPACE, Mare Street
- A stipend of 1800
- A production allowance of 500
- Curatorial support and programming
- Showcase for works produced
