In today’s AI-driven world, increasingly organized and shaped by algorithms that track, collect, and evaluate our data, the question of what it means to be human has shifted. Uncanny Valley is the first major exhibition to unpack this question through a lens of contemporary art and propose new ways of thinking about intelligence, nature, and artifice.
Join us for the opening of Uncanny Valley: Being Human in the Age of AI with a special lecture by exhibition curator, Claudia Schmuckli.
