As part of the Working Paper publication format, the forth title »Can Artificial Intelligence be biased? On the critique of AI’s ‘algorithmic Bias’ in the arts« by Dr Inke Arns (HMKV HartwareMedienKunstVerein) is published. A German language version has also appeared here.

This Working Paper is dedicated to artistic positions that critically deal with ‘artificial intelligence’ and automated Pattern Recognition through algorithms. Using a series of examples, it shows the social struggles that results from the distortions of Bias and how artists react to it. Building on analyses by Harun Farocki and Hito Steyerl, projects by Adam Harvey and Jules LaPlace, Zach Blas and Jemima Wyman, Elisa Giardina Papa, Francis Hunger and Flupke, Erika Scourti, Mimi Onuoha, Nora Al-Badri, and Jan Nikolai Nelles are presented.

A first version of this article appeared under the title »Kann Künstliche Intelligenz Vorurteile haben? Zur Kritik algorithmischer Verzerrung von Realität« in the German Kunstforum International #278 (November 2021), pp. 108-121.
