Presented by the Goethe-Institut Montreal, in collaboration with the Speculative Life Research Cluster at Concordia University, “Automated Environments” will address the rise of ecologies of automation and their impact on human life, habitation, agency, sovereignty, and imagination. The event will provide an opportunity to ask how the turn to “smart” and automated systems is historically related to changes in governance, politics, and economy, while considering the future of “intelligent” design, habitats, economies, and polities. Panel discussions will be moderated by Orit Halpern and Chris Salter of the Speculative Life Research Cluster.
Admission is free, but an RSVP is required. Visit the Goethe-Institut website for details.
