Panel discussion // Artificial intelligence, utopias and science

Panel discussion // Programme June 2nd 2023, 2 - 3:30pm



Copenhagen Photo Festival is organising a two-day programme in collaboration with Futures Photography Platform on June 1st-2nd 2023.  The overarching theme of 2023 is REWILDING, paying homage to the fact that Copenhagen has been appointed World Capital of Architecture in 2023 by UNESCO . 

CPF always put great focus on the architectural and spatial aspects when selecting artists and when designing the specific exhibition. Our considerations are always led by our principle of sustainability, finding creative ways to blur the border between our exhibitions and the nature and atmosphere of our exhibition park at Refshaleøen in Central Copenhagen. Focusing on photography, architecture and sustainability is therefore at the core of our DNA as a photo festival.

The programme takes place in a double tipi in the middle of our rewilded exhibition park in a post-industrial shipyard district of Copenhagen. This exhibition park is the heart of the festival which in total counts more than 40 exhibitions at collaborating galleries, museums and cultural institutions in Copenhagen and southern Sweden. For 11 days, photography is on the agenda through exhibitions, workshops, talks, photobook markets and more.




2-3:30 pm: Panel discussion: Artificial intelligence, utopias and science
What are the future aspects? New technologies offer new concepts of art and concepts of reality. How does it affect our understanding of the artwork? How does it challenge our ethical codex and what healing potentials does the technology offer in the global climate crisis?

In the panel: CPF solo artist Craig Ames (UK), Futures 2023 talent Susanne Fagerlund (SE) and Futures artist Daniel Szalai (HU), Majken Overgaard, co-founder of Korridor, Lisa Giomar Hydén, exhibition director at Fotografiska Stockholm. Moderated by Ezio Di Nucci, philosophy professor at Department of Public Health, the University of Copenhagen
