The Fresh Eye platform for visual culture studies and the Uroboros festival of socially-engaged art and design invite the general public, artists, students and experts in the field of media, graphic design and communication technologies to participate in the two-day workshop meeting dedicated to the development of critical discussion and practical reflection of the production, application and experimentation with artificial intelligence.

The program explores the forms and possibilities of collaborative relationships between humans and algorithms. It focuses on moments of deliberate collaboration as well as moments that go off track and out of control. Rather than seeing algorithmic culture as separate from human culture, it examines how algorithms affect our bodies and senses. Last but not least, the workshop series opens up questions concerning the critique of artificial intelligence and explores the possibilities of involving AI in the creative process, not only at the level of generating results but also at the very stages of formulating ideas, thoughts and research plans.

The international program will take place on Friday, December 8 and Saturday, December 9 at the Krenovka Cultural and Community Center, Husitská 22, Prague 3. It will offer three free workshops in English without interpretation and the final discussion. We are looking for participants interested in joining the full program on both days.

Please, apply with a short motivation text (max. 250 words) and a bio/ portfolio through the interactive form available in the call and on the Fresh Eye website by November 20, 2023.

The event is part of the Uroboros Festival 2023, the first part of which takes place on November 2–4, 2023 at Petrohradská Kolektiv, Petrohradská 13, Prague 10. For the fourth time, the festival becomes a platform for meetings of artists, designers and researchers combining their interest in the eco-social transformation and new technologies, which they subject to critical reflection in an attempt to find new forms of collaboration and mutual understanding.
