Can Artificial Intelligence be biased? On the critique of AI's 'algorithmic bias' in the arts


  • 1. HMKV Dortmund


This working paper is dedicated to artistic positions that critically deal with ‘artificial intelli- gence’ and automated pattern recognition through algorithms. Using a series of examples, it shows the social struggles that results from the distortions of bias and how artists react to it. Building on analyses by Harun Farocki and Hito Steyerl, projects by Adam Harvey and Jules LaPlace, Zach Blas and Jemima Wyman, Elisa Giardina Papa, Francis Hunger and Flupke, Erika Scourti, Mimi Onuoha, Nora Al-Badri, and Jan Nikolai Nelles are presented.
