Opening: Friday, 03.05.2024 from 7 pm

**The ZKM invites you to its Lichthöfe 1+2, followed by an after-show party in the rooms of the HfG, Lichthof 3.

The exhibition in Lichthof 1+2 is open from 20:00 to 23:00.

From Saturday, 04.05.2024 the ZKM Karlsruhe presents its new exhibition on the topic of Artificial Intelligence. One of the works on display was contributed by Anne Duk Hee Jordan, who has been Professor of Digital Media Art at the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design since 2023.

On Saturday 04.05.2024 there will be an action day. From 11:00-18:00 there will be guided tours and workshops on the exhibition in atrium 1+2, ground floor.

Under the title "(A)I Tell You, You Tell Me. Three Encounters for Humans/Machines", the exhibition offers visitors the opportunity to enter into a dialog with algorithmic systems. "(A)I Tell You, You Tell Me" will be on display up to and including Sunday, 24.11.2024.

In the interactive field of action of the new ZKM exhibition, visitors can intuitively explore their own relationship to technology, they can dissolve possible reservations or reflect on their own self in the supposedly technological other. To this end, the ZKM has commissioned three expansive works that occupy the first floor of atrium 1+2: "AEIOU" (2024) by the Karlsruhe artist group robotlab, the intervention "Flatware, Hardware, Software, Wetware" (2024) by Hertzlab, the ZKM's in-house artistic research department, and "Electrify Me, Baby" (2024) by Berlin artist and HfG professor Anne Duk Hee Jordan.

Anne Duk Hee Jordan, who has held the professorship for Digital Media Art at the Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design since 2023, offers an encounter between humans and machines with her multi-sensory installation "Electrify Me, Baby" (2024). In her works, Jordan uses nature and biological phenomena as metaphors to engage in an often ironic dialog between art, science, technology, society and identity. She creates hybrid worlds that defy binary thinking and counter anthropocentrism with a more-than-human perspective.

"Electrify Me, Baby" (2024) creates its own cosmos that oscillates between natural and technical phenomena and describes the course of things, of life from beginning to end. In a humorous way, the installation invites us to reflect on our own existence in a world in which all human and non-human beings are inextricably linked. The artist counters the efficiency of today's technologies with a concept of "Artificial Stupidity", which allows for mistakes and unproductivity in order to readjust our relationship to our planet.
