Digital technologies are ubiquitous in our everyday lives. The post-digital age is omnipresent, also in the areas of art and culture.
ART OR ARTIFICIAL explores the consequences for the art sector looking at the field of visual arts, the art market, museums as mediators of art, or literature.
ART WITHOUT ARTISTS?

AS IF BY MAGIC -
CURATING WITH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
Digital curation - It sounds absurd at first, since the curation process is known to be a very personal matter that has to be followed with sensitivity.
Nevertheless, AI is already used in this field. How? What are the up-sides, what the limitations?
Yvonne Zindel, Author, Curator, Educator for Digital Art
DIGITALIZATION, THE INTELLIGENT SWARM AND THE MUSEUM
To what extent can museums use digital technologies to do justice to their audience's changed modes of reception and communication? Could digital technologies revolutionize the museum and its relationship with the audience?

READING IN THE AGE OF THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION
Digital media influence our reading behavior, especially in the younger generation. Media such as Twitter educate to short messages, Instagram & Co communicate in pictures and videos. Long texts appear old-fashioned. Are digital technologies just a threat to literature or also an opportunity? How can digital technologies revolutionize literature?

The merging of time and place in digital space
Our world is spinning faster and faster. It is not so much a question of whether information is available, but rather whether it can be found. The novelty of the information, user behavior and the algorithms of the social networks play a major role in this. How can images remain in our attention, how can real places be connected to the virtual world?

ORIGINAL AND SIMULATION
When AI makes art
