Artificial Intelligence by Doug Fishbone (2018) is a machine that dispenses wisdom in return for a 10-cent investment. A short meditation on time, impermanence and loss, it was originally installed on the main square in Halle (Saale), Germany, where it was commissioned by the Werkleitz Festival 2018. Spanning from the theft of the Mona Lisa in 1911 to the shortages of sausages in the German Democratic Republic to the Mahabharata, the short film shown on the machine offers an unusual perspective on the rise and fall of human civilization through the prism of the chaos of 20th-century Europe.

In the first half of the year, the Videorama is dedicated to the artists of the European Media Art Platform (EMAP). Each month until July 2021 Werkleitz will present one of the productions by the selected artists and collectives.
Parallel to the showcase, the works will also be shown online at werkleitz.de

The Werkleitz Festival 2021 (June 18-July 4) presents new media art productions from the international residency program European Media Art Platform (EMAP) initiated by Werkleitz and supported by Creative Europe. The hybrid studio exhibition for digital culture will be accompanied by the specialist conference focusing on digitality.
