Exhibition | Digital Barriers: AI + ART for ACTIVISM
Not having quality access to the Internet means being excluded from society. Whether we like it or not, everything is digitized: from doing school homework, to get through paperwork with the Administration, or even contacting relatives remotely. But Internet access is not guaranteed equally to all citizens.
Although the official accounts say that the future and innovation are based on the digitization of life, social movements warn otherwise: a one-way turn towards the digitization of citizenship leaves many people behind.
To delve into the contradictions in which we live, the artist Bernat Cuní explores in this installation the multiple narratives surrounding Internet access and the digital divide. In this piece we see images of the districts of Barcelona through two perspectives: the first one with innovation as a solution to the problems of our society, and the second one with the consequences of innovation for the life of cities.
This installation is part of the pilot program Xarxa Oberta de Barris del Canòdrom, a project of the entity EXO (Expansión de Xarxa Oberta) and Canòdrom to respond to the lack acces to quality Internet suffered by families from neighboring neighborhoods in Canòdrom.
Visiting hours: Monday to Friday, from 5 to 8 pm. Free entrance.
Bernat Cuní's wok has been created thanks to the production grant from ESPRONCEDA-Institute of Art & Culture within the European project AI4Future and co-financed by the European Commission within the Creative Europe programme.

Conversation with Mathew Aderson
Some claim that the finished result lacks soul or feeling because the entire process is automated. Others dispute that claim, asserting that all art is ultimately produced by humans, even when those humans use technology to aid in their work. There is no turning back now; AI is irreversibly altering the face of the art industry.
Amazing. Un comentari automatitzat i generat per un bot en la landing d'una expo dedicada a l'impacte de la IA i les escletxes digitals. Què poètic tot plegat.
ets un romàntic!
Sempre! Pessimista de la raó però romàntic i optimista per voluntat 💝
