In order to understand artificial intelligence an approach called critical re-modelling operating within commonist media practice might be useful. Critical re-modelling builds on media archaeology, cognitive mapping, countervisuality, and critical theory; while commonist media practise is framed as a cyborgian approach à la Donna Haraway, critically inquiring and applying computational models. Selected works of art by Rybn, Algolit, and Tactical Tech provide concrete examples of critical re-modelling. The article concludes by arguing that the wider educational implications in humanities-driven scholarship of media cultures need to be reconsidered, in case commonist media practice seriously want to participate in the coming societal transformations of this decade.

by Paula Albuquerque Artistic research as modus operandi Methodologically, this artistic research project manifests in two realms: theory-based research and art practice. It involves a theoretical research to study the social and political relevance of documentary evidence produced by CCTV and military drones. This is developed in parallel with a hands-on experimental approach where I […]
