Generation A=Algorithm, AI Residency Programme

In 2020 and 2021, the Goethe-Institut will implement the large-scale project “Generation A=Algorithm”, in which technical developments in the field of artificial intelligence will be highlighted and at the same time critically reflected upon. As part of the project “Generation A=Algorithm”, thirteen residencies in eleven European countries for young artists from Europe are being announced.

The residencies are affiliated with an institution or start-up that is intensively involved in the development of artificial intelligence and algorithm-based systems. An opportunity to exhibit artistic works created in the context of the residencies will be offered at the close of the project “Generation A=Algorithm”.


With the AI Residency Programme the Goethe Institut aims to initiate both a dialogue between art and technology and a dialogue reaching beyond the borders of European countries.
