Fringes of Obscurity. Robert M Ochshorn, in conversation with Rubén Grilo

Fringes of Obscurity; where obscurity is at the center and its fringes are the elements with mass appeal.

Next Monday, May 30th, at 6 pm, Robert M Ochshorn will give a presentation in Hangar to introduce us to his latest works and research, addressing deep learning, AI, digital life and digitization of life, free software imaginaries or platform capitalism as leak and turning points. This activity is related to his recent collaboration with artist Rubén Grilo, with whom he has been working for the development of his exhibition Erres, at Lo Pati-Center d’Art Terres de l’Ebre in Amposta, curated by Marc Navarro, based on speculation and the possibility of teaching artificial intelligence to bark.

Following his presentation, there will be an open conversation with Rubén Grilo and Hangar’s community.

Date: Monday, May 30, 2022
Time: 18:00
Venue: Plato Room (entrance by Polivalent)
