Re:Humanism - Rethinking the body and identity in the age of artificial intelligence

How do the concepts of body and identity change in the light of new discoveries in science and technology? What role does AI play in these changes? This is one of the themes underlying the second edition of Re:Humanism, the art prize dedicated to the relationship between art and artificial intelligence. The panel aims to frame the main transformations that the universe of artificial intelligence technologies has brought into contemporary artistic practices with particular reference to performance and all those approaches that identify the body as a place for exploring identity.


Moderates: Federica Patti

The Cool Couple - Simone Santilli

The Cool Couple (often shortened TCC) is an artist duo based in Milan, Italy, and established in late 2012 by Niccolò Benetton (1986) and Simone Santilli (1987). Their research focuses on the friction points generated daily in the relationship between people and images. The idea of images as active hubs, combined with a strong projectual attitude, results in the use of several forms of expression, ranging from fine art photography to electrostatic wipes, from meditation rooms to Chinese cover-bands. The Cool Couple combines artistic research with didactics, because it’s good karma to share. They have been lecturers at: NABA (Milan), IUAV University (Venice), AplusA gallery (Venice), University of South Wales (Newport), IED Turin, ISSP, Riga, MADE Program, Syracuse. They are founders of trendsetting cover band Rui & the Rainbow Dragons, members of POIUYT, a platform for image-based research, and among the editorial team of Genda Magazine.

Re:Humanism

The Cult. Ass.Re:Humanism was born to give a structure to various cultural activities such as exhibitions, festivals, conferences and educational projects in order to investigate the relationship between humanistic and scientific culture with a main focus on Artificial Intelligence’s research. This technology lends itself to various ethical, social and philosophical reflections. The task of culture is to set new questions and to offer new possible needs, developments, ways of using technology – intended as a medium. After launching the art prize, Re:Humanism pursues the aim of widening its range of action, also engaging in other cultural, research and educational activities. www.re-humanism.com

fuse* - Mattia Carretti

fuse is a studio and production company at the intersection of art and science, exploring the expressive potential by the creative use of emerging technologies.  Since inception, the studio’s research has focused primarily on the production of installations and live media performances which instill wonder and motivate audiences to challenge what is possible. As the studio evolved, creation of new projects became more holistic and placed increasingly higher value on pure experimentation. The objective of fuse is to push past accepted limits, spur empathy and seek out new interplay between light, space, sound, and movement. fuse maintains close ties to its community, by developing, supporting, and promoting projects with the intent of propagating culture and knowledge. In this vein, fuse has co-produced NODE, an electronic music and digital arts festival, since 2016. 
Over the years, fuse* has exhibited and performed internationally at art institutions and festivals including Mutek, TodaysArt, Sónar Istanbul, Artechouse, STRP Biennial, RomaEuropa, Kikk, Scopitone and the National Centre for the Performing Arts of China.
