Echoes from the Past, Visions for the Future


A Political Knowledge Event

locandina pk
Political Knowledge was born as an opportunity for meeting and debate to make the world of art, the gatekeepers of memory and the communication experts in the digital world dialogue concretely with the intention of realising a shared vision and planning.

Art is able to create suggestions that help the authentic understanding of reality. However, if it is deprived of its political dimension, its value is lost and it is transformed into a moment of mere consumption. 

Let's take the AI instead: its value is profound in the ability to solve problems by enabling systems to understand the environment. In this sense it opens up new artistic frontiers, but what happens if you put it in competition with creatives by discouraging the political dimension of art?

Finally, there are the archives: their purpose is to preserve historical memory through the enhancement of authentic documents and their renewal achieved thanks to digitization contributes in an essential way to the preservation of cultural heritage.

But what happens when AI draws indiscriminately from the web, making the daily knowledge shared by the masses rise to absolute truth?

We will try to find points of contact starting from these contradictions with Felice Ardito artist, Micaela Procaccia president of the "Italian National Archives Association" ANAI and Matteo Flora entrepreneur and communicator.
