Første Torsdag / Cecilie Waagner Falkenstrøm: Covid-19 AI Battle

Art Bar
Free entry

Kunsthal Aarhus invites you to our monthly pop-up exhibition Første Torsdag – this time online.

For the work Covid-19 AI Battle, The Danish artist Cecilie Wagner Falkenstrøm has developed two artificial intelligences with data, respectively, from Donald Trump and the WHO's Tedros Adhanom statements about Covid-19. Now, the two AIs will go toe to toe in a historical battle on our website.

What would happen if The President of the United States stopped accusing the WHO of favouring China and put aside his threats about withdrawing the USA and, instead, actually sat down to talk to the World Health Organisation? (Perhaps) You will get the answer.

You are more than welcome to participate in the online debate – from your home computer or from a computer in Kunsthal Aarhus. Join the debate that can go in every and absolutely no direction!

Første Torsdag is a platform for time-limited artistic experiments. Two hours each month we hand over Café Kunsthal or Kunsthal Aarhus’ outdoor areas to a new artist every time.

Første Torsdag is a monthly ‘art bar’, where the art is inevitably influenced by the social context in which it appears. Beige therapy, melting sculptures, live coding, fading flowers and silly walks are just a small selection of what has taken place. The artists usually take the opportunity to try out new performative works or to give new life to an older work.

Let this be your monthly Thursday tradition. Discover the best of the new – cherry-picked for you by Kunsthal Aarhus.

In collaboration with the artist, Café Kunsthal creates a cocktail for the occasion so that the art is not only observed - it can also be consumed.

Første Torsdag is curated by Kunsthal Aarhus' curator Mikkel Elming.
