Experts and Background Research

Double Learning


Humans, Machines and Inclusivity in the AI Sphere

by Mey Seifan/ Tanween company in collaboration with studio slowfuture

24 and 25.02.2024 at the Alte Münze – Berlin

In the performative installation and panel, “Double Learning,” set against the backdrop of Berlin’s multicultural landscape, Mey Seifan/ Tanween company in collaboration with studio slowfuture explore the intersection of diverse canons and technology within the AI sphere. The installation and conference aims to redefine discourse through AI driven interviews conducted with international experts from the Global South, eliminating the contextual constraints of identity and challenging AI’s built-in discriminatory biases. By scrutinizing the impact of identity-centric discussions on the essence of dialogue, the project questions the longevity and authenticity of marginalized narratives in the cultural canon.

In the midst of this exploration, we highlight the dynamic interplay of performative elements, showcasing a diverse range of performers who bring a variety of movement languages to the space. Our investigation examines the exciting relationship between the human body and AI scanning, challenging stereotypes and inviting the audience to consider the question: Can we provoke a response that disrupts the algorithms?
