Bulletin #15. art & automation: for an apologia of leisure time by Marco Antelmi


Robotics and soft AI are bringing everyday changes both to the work field and to our free time. How does this condition reflect itself on the artistic practice? Can we humans liberate ourselves from our anthropocentric viewpoint and accept the intellective superiority of machines? Will we be able to overcome our fear of automation? In the utopian view of a fully automated production, not only work ethics should be re-thought, but also our certainties about aesthetics.

About the author:

Following his post-internet experience, made of memes and experimental techno music, Marco Antelmi (Bari, IT, 1993) analyzes the new accelerationist theories. From this moment, his world opens up on the analysis of anthropocentrism and focuses on the ecological issue and on the relationship with alterity, enquired in his artistic research.
Graduated in Civil Engineering at Politecnico di Milano, he is now attending a MA in Visual Arts and Curatorial Studies at NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan.
