AI4FUTURE DAY I: Slow Reading AI & Gender Inequality

Led by Fellow Renée Turner, the SLOW READERS organise the first day of a two-day event on AI and gender inequality.

May 2021
16:00 to 21:00
location: Online

Join the evening talk here (starting 19:00 CET)


As a part of their inquiry, the SLOW READERS are organizing a two-day event filled with afternoon collective readings and evening talks by guests  Alicia Juarrero and Alexandra Mason. The aim is to sketch the scope and entanglement of AI systems to plot spaces of mobility, agency, and refusal.

Against the pace of infinite urgencies surrounding AI and gender inequality, the SLOW READERS have embraced deceleration. Their research is emergent, transdisciplinary, and at times, rubbing against the grain of linear logic. Rather than streamlining for clarity, SLOW READERS employ a range of reading methodologies to persistently move through and engage with the quagmire.

AI4FUTURE is an international network of urban labs where artists and young activists cooperate to create awareness through the use of Artificial Intelligence to serve the community. It consists of a team of skilled organizations working on cross-fertilization projects at the intersection of digital culture and social challenges such as project leader Sineglossa, an Italian cultural ecosystem that shapes new sustainable development models in response to global challenges by applying the processes of contemporary art; Espronceda/Lemongrass, a Barcelona-based institute of art and culture; V2_Lab for the Unstable Media; MEET Digital Culture Center, the international center for digital culture and creative technology based in Milan and associated partner Sardegna Teatro, a Sardinian leading performing arts organization.


The AI4FUTURE DAYS are made possible thanks to financial support from the Creative Europe Programma of the EUCreative Industries Fund NL and the City of Rotterdam.

SLOW READING is also a part of RASL's transdisciplinary research.

Partners in the AI4Future project are MEET, Sineglossa, Espronceda & Sardegna Teatre
