sparks and frictions - re:humanism art prize

Feb. 28, 2023

Sparks and Frictions is the title of the third edition of Re:Humanism Art Prize, which since 2018 is dedicated to exploring the relationship between art and artificial intelligence. This edition consolidates the idea of contemporary art as an agent capable of arousing reflections and developing imaginations about the future to come but also to oppose technocratic regimes as part of sustainable and inclusive development. With this edition, the program expands through the relationship with all forms of technological media and scientific topics that bring important reflections on identity, relationships and possible futures into play. From quantum technologies to metaverse, from genetics and biohacking, while retaining a look at the new scenarios of AI, will be evaluated different forms of artistic speculation that, as in each edition, should not necessarily involve the direct use of the technologies concerned.

Participants are invited to submit works relating on the following topics:  → NEW ECOLOGIES: poetics and policies for rethinking the logic of data extractivism and environmental resources.  → THINKING QUANTUM: lights and shadows regarding quantum physics’ new discoveries and related technologies.  → NEW NARRATIVES: re-reading techno-scientific progress through the lens of decoloniality recovering rituals and situated knowledge, exploring the potential of technologies to generate new mythologies.  → PLAYING WITH NON-HUMAN: the exploration of relationships with the non-human through the filter of advanced technologies.  → EXPLORING METAVERSE: visions, fears and dreams linked to the metaverse.  → HACKING THE BODY: biohacking between re-appropriation and extension of body's potential.  → MACHINE VISIONS AND DREAMS: once again, space for the free exploration of the machinic unconscious.  → OTHER EXPLORATIONS: different looks at the futures that await us.

Eleven projects will be selected and divided into the 3 main categories MAIN PRIZE (which also contains the Salvatore Iaconesi Special Mention), the EMERGING PRIZE and the ROMAEUROPA DIGITALIVE PRIZE.
