Ether’s Bloom marks the first part of the Programme on Artificial Intelligence (AI) at the Gropius Bau, inviting us to engage with the experimental, ethical and poetic dimensions now blossoming through new networks of knowledge production.

The artists and thinkers in Ether’s Bloom challenge us to reconsider the established ways we relate to one another, to other life forms and to machines. From different perspectives, they use self-learning technologies as a tool or topic to expose overlooked narratives and to open doors to spaces to be imagined anew. How can we think differently and responsibly about AI’s role in our entangled futures?

A Programme on Artificial Intelligence

Ether's Bloom kicks off the first programme on artificial intelligence at the Gropius Bau.

Until 14 January 2024, works by Patricia Domínguez, Elisa Giardina Papa and Mimi Ọnụọha along with a newly commissioned work by Berlin-based duo kennedy+swan are showcased in freely accessible spaces of the Gropius Bau. Ether’s Bloom also includes various online formats, such as a digital intervention, a residency format (Writer in Residence: K Allado-McDowell) and the podcast Beyond and Within: AI Talks.

Guided Tours and Events

Ether’s Bloom is accompanied by the thinking and contemplation of cultural scientist, researcher and writer Maya Indira Ganesh, who is present throughout the year with new content and publications in various forms.
