DEAR HUMANS,... is a long-term project conceived to produce discourse and several exhibitions on the thematic complex of “Human 4.0,” initiated by the Altana Galerie of the Office of Cultural Heritage at the TU Dresden. The goal of the scholarly-aesthetic pilot project is a transdisciplinary research cooperation between artists and scholars on a range of topics -- #Human #Machine #Future #Interaction #Algorithm.

In the first ART SCIENCE LAB, visual artists and scholars will introduce themselves; over the course of two years, these artists will develop and pursue a research question together. The result of the transdisciplinary cooperation will be presented in four further ART SCIENCE LABS and discussed with the public in 2019/2020.

For the period from fall 2018 until summer 2020, we have invited three artists’ collectives to TU Dresden. They will engage with social interaction-correlations and processes in their works, and then ask how we want to live and how we want to shape our future. ALICE PERAGINE; TABITA REZAIRE, YOUNG READING GROUP, among others, will research the topic of “Human 4.0” and work on the resulting issues from scholarly and artistic perspectives.
Issues related to “Human 4.0,” artificial intelligence (AI), occupy not only science and research but also many artists, while at the same time, unnerving broader society.
The content of our exhibition projects in the Altana Galerie of the Office of Cultural Heritage at the TU Dresden take up just these thoughts: the humanities, engineering, and sciences have an ever greater influence on life in our society, and this is ever more strongly perceived by the public. We will develop projects for long-term, boundary-crossing collaborations At the intersection of art, science, and research. These transdisciplinary formats pave the way for an experimental and reflexive engagement with the topics of the involved sciences and arts.
