Understanding prospective Artificial Intelligence not as a definite form, but as an ongoing engineering project concerned with the question of what future forms of intelligence can be, the 'STATE OF INTERIM Team' is seeking young positions in research & practice to contribute to a transdisciplinary discourse.

As a space for interdisciplinary exchange by bridging boundaries between institutions in order to leverage co-creative work, kaeur.studio is hosting the STATE OF INTERIM as a co-organised event by students from the HFBK (University of Fine Arts Hamburg) and the Universität Hamburg.

*The symposium is mentored by the Department of Time-based Media at the HFBK.
