MACHINE VISION, MACHINE HEARING. SURVEILLANCE, SIMULATION, SPECULATION.
Following the cycle “Machine seeing: images, power, algorithms” that took place in 2018-2019, this new meeting schedule invests the field of automated seeing and listening technologies as well as their social and political uses.
These technologies are at the origin of very diverse devices such as the smart city (the so-called “intelligent” city, in other words, administered by algorithms) or the deep fake (thistechnique of hyper-destruction bysuperimposing audiovisual content on other videos)produce concrete effects on the conduct of our lives and open up horizons that end up being more often dystopian than emancipatory. Above all, they encourage us to investigate, at a new expense, belief systems in image and voice.
Each meeting revolves around projections and interventions by artists, photographers and filmmakers, as well as art, cinema, media and visual and sound culture theorists.
With Anthony Masure, research director at the Art and Design Institute of the Haute école d’art et de design – HEAD, Geneva, and Alexia Mathieu, director of the Master degree Media Design at the HEAD, Geneva.
