Futurabilities

Azahara Cerezo

A bot programmed to read parts of Futurability. The Age of Impotence and the Horizon of Possibility (2019) to other chatbots, who answer and learn from the conversation. In this book, Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi analyses the global order that shapes our politics and our imagination, proposing that the key to a radical change lies in our relationship with technologies.

Azahara Cerezo’s Futurabilities is a study that explores human-automatic conversational possibilities around the current context of connected solitudes. It runs for the duration of the Festival as a virtual performance in progress.

 

Presented as part of Creativate Digital Arts Festival.
