Sebastian Schmieg, Professor of Interface Design, HTW Dresden

Wednesday, January 20, 5:30 pm

In this lecture, Sebastian Schmieg will introduce his artistic practice and research. Working in a wide range of media, including video and installation as well as lecture performance and delivery service, Schmieg investigates the algorithmic circulation of images, texts, and bodies. He creates playful interventions that penetrate the shiny surfaces of our networked society and explore the realities that lie behind them. In particular, Schmieg focuses on outsourcing, algorithmic management, and artificial intelligence.

Schmieg’s work has been exhibited internationally at The Photographers’ Gallery London, Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig, Haus der elektronischen Künste Basel, and the Chronus Art Center Shanghai, among others. He lives in Berlin and is a Professor of Interface Design at HTW Dresden.
