Curation and its Statistical Automation by means of Artificial ‘Intelligence’.

Working Paper Series 3, November 2021 (PDF, open DL)

The concept of post-AI curating discussed in this Working Paper explores curation as a knowledge-creation process, supported by Pattern Recognition and weighted networks as technical tools of artificial ‘intelligence’.

It then examines several projects as case studies that approach curation using artificial ‘intelligence’: The Next Biennial Should Be Curated by a Machine from UBERMORGEN, Leonardo Impett and Joasia Krysa (2021) as a meta-artwork about curation and biennials; Tillmann Ohm’s project Artificial Curator (2020), which resulted in an automatically curated exhibition; and #Exstrange by Rebekah Modrak and Marialaura Ghidini et. al. (2017), which presents artworks as data objects on the eBay online platform.
