In This is the Future, artist Hito Steyerl combines storytelling, video projection, sculpture, and spatial intervention to envision a potential future of empowered plants evolving through artificial intelligence. The exhibition opens with a short film about the long-held human desire to predict the future and the failure to achieve this using AI. Join us for this opening talk, where Steyerl looks more closely at how so-called AI art has regressed in the meantime.

Hito Steyerl (born 1 January 1966) is a German filmmaker and writer, and lives in Berlin.
