Prof. Dr. Lasse Scherffig and Matthias Grund (Research Associate, KISD) will present their collaborative work with Prof. Thomas Hawranke, Ph.D. (Burg Giebichenstein University of Art and Design Halle) on “Puppy Slugs, Vibes and Visual Alignment” at the transdisciplinary workshop “The Art of AI: Narratives, Creativities and Ethics” at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz, Italy.

The workshop, organized by Hana Gründler and Rafael Brundo Uriarte, will offer critical reflections on artificial intelligence from the Early Modern period to today in visual culture and literature, and examine how these cultural imaginaries have shaped expectations, fears, and understanding of AI over time. The aim is to better understand the implications of technological advancements and their profound ethical and societal effects in the changing landscape of AI, and its transformation of everyday life.

With talks by: Corina Apostol, Matthias Grund and Lasse Scherffig, Leonardo Impett, Elizabeth C. Mansfield, Lisa Moravec, Grischka Petri, Margarete Pratschke, Nuria Rodríguez Ortega, Jens Schröter, Tijen Tunali.
