The two-day summit “Unchained: KI, Krypto & Kunst” by the bildungswerk des bbk berlin will explore the transformative potential of AI, crypto and new digital platforms for artists in the visual arts. The central concern of the summit is to bring together current issues from the perspective of visual artists and to reflect on them together.

The event will kick off with a panel discussion on 1 September, which, in dialogue with the audience, will provide a snapshot of the possibilities opened up for artistic practice by Web 3.0 and technological progress. On the second day, a diverse programme of discussions and workshops will follow, focusing on concrete fields of practice of women curators, academics, gallery owners and art collectors. In thematic and interest areas, participants will work specifically on case studies in order to strengthen their own artistic perspectives. The conference will conclude with a panel discussion on cultural policy, which will discuss possible steps in cultural policy and concrete calls for action, also from a socio-economic perspective.
