We are living through a global, political, and environmental crisis of unknown proportions and destinations. Our human capacity for governance has demonstrated a long history of failure. With THE AI PARTY initiative we have a chance to formulate and test new approaches to the challenges we face by asking the question: Is it time to give another kind of intelligence the opportunity to do it better?
THE AI PARTY aims to establish a new political party led by an artificial intelligence. Bringing together artists, performance-makers, and AI researchers the initiative will focus on the legal formation of an actual political party in preparation for a series of online and public events.
THE AI PARTY is both a large-scale performance and the start of a new political movement. The first official launch of THE AI PARTY happened on Friday 1. 9. 2017 at 10.30 pm at the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki as part of the Night of Philosophy event which was part of the program of Helsinki Festival.
Concept and realization: The Center for Everything (FIN), Triage Live Art Collective (GER/AU), Bombina Bombast (SWE), and First Kiss Production (NO).
