From 24-26 October, Constant hosts the research/Phd workshop Machine Research in collaboration with the Participatory IT Research Centre, Aarhus University and Transmediale art & digital culture, Berlin.

The workshop aims to engage research and artistic practice that takes into account the new materialist conditions implied by nonhuman techno-ecologies including new ontologies of learning and intelligence (such as algorithmic learning), socio-economic organisation (such as blockchain), population management and tracking (such as datafied borders), autonomous or semi-autonomous systems (such as bots or drones) and other post-anthropocentric reconsiderations of agency, materiality and autonomy.

This three day workshop will generate various on-line and off-line publications. The evening programs on Monday 24 and Tuesday 25 October are open to the public.
