Event / Exhibition

Némo, International Biennial of Digital Arts 2019
Title: Archeology of a digital world

About

Considered to be post-human beings or beings of the future, the spectators will come to visit a museum that has been abandoned since 2019, after the disappearance of the human species… Room after room, they will discover an exhibition of digital contemporary art and robotics in which artworks have continued to function in full autonomy, without their creator or their initial public. Paradoxically, this exhibition had been programmed at an age where human beings worried, quite rightly, about their possible disappearance, or their replacement by machines and A.I. From then on, what was a speculative exhibition questioning more or less desirable futures has become an archaeological exhibition on 2019, when everything ceased to exist for the homo sapiens…
