Exhibition | Land, Safety and Grief
December 9, 2023 12:00 - December 15, 2023 18:00
Losing land, searching for safety and seeking space to grief.
The loss of land leads to an ongoing grieving process. The need of the people affected for a place where they can grieve appropriately and find security is huge.
However, the search for familiarity through people, experiences and language creates a vicious circle of incomplete grief and unanswered questions.
Having been robbed of their land, people stay where at least the history of the land can continue and a vision can be preserved as a final link to what is left of the being.
This concept raises the question of home and belonging, one that is inseparable from freedom, justice and power.
As this exhibition is part of the conference "Artificial intelligence and journalism in the Global South", artists are invited to create artworks through multimedia contributions that incorporate AI tools in some way into their creative process or reflect on them (by using them, criticising them, etc.).
As it is an unavoidably predominant tool in forming our perception of reality.
You are cordially invited to the opening of the exhibition on December 08.12.2023th, 18 from 00:22 p.m. to 00:XNUMX p.m.
Ticket: FREE ADMISSION!
