Arts and Robots

Die International Association of Art Europe (IAA Europe) lädt am 18. Oktober 2023 von 09.30 - 17.00 Uhr zum Symposium ARTS & ROBOTS: Future of artists’ labour in the context of current technological development in Belgrad und via Zoom ein. Das Symposium 2023 wurde in Partnerschaft mit der Association of Fine Artists of Serbia und mit Dank an a-n The Artists Information Company für deren Unterstützung bei der Vorbereitung des Symposiums entwickelt.

The last decades were marked by growing global political and economic deregulations, which brought instability and insecurity in all areas of human living and labour. Already existing inequalities increased, provoking waves of migrations, wars, and ecological disasters. All of this, of course, didn’t bypass the field of arts and culture. A number of initiatives and voices were raised questioning the place of arts and culture in the rapidly changing world threatened by growing general instability, and now forthcoming technological developments of which we are hardly able to foresee.

Responses to the general precarisation of work and depletion of social and humanistic values in the field of arts have been seen in numerous proposals to regulate better working conditions for visual artists. Lots of professional associations issued codes of fair practices and fair pay calculators, devised ways for artists’ remunerations through collective copyright agencies, and advocated for basic income, etc – understanding arts and culture not as an entertaining element to the overall social and political structure, but as its vital part. 

The reality is that a vast number of artists and cultural workers around the globe joined the army of precarious class, which with the new development of generated AI technologies are facing an even greater threat of becoming useless.

For this reason, we have to first understand where we stand with our knowledge, experience and ways of working and understand where our closest alliances are.

The coming symposium invites the visual artists’ community and all interested in discussing perspectives and speculating possible scenarios of the development of art labour and the place of art in the society of the near future.
