The cultural association Re:humanism was founded to give a structure to different cultural activities such as exhibitions, festivals, conferences and educational projects, in order to investigate the relationship between humanistic and scientific culture, with particular attention to research on artificial intelligence.
This technology lends itself to various ethical, social and philosophical reflections. The task of culture is to ask new questions and to offer new possible needs, developments, ways of using technology – understood as a tool.
Fundamental in the activity of the Association is the Re:humanism Art Prize, which offers artists the opportunity to exhibit their artworks and reflect on the nature and consequences of technological advancement.
The artistic award was held for the first time in 2019 at the artistic and cultural production center AlbumArte and in 2021 at the MAXXI Foundation in Rome. In 2023 the third edition of the award will be hosted in the exhibition space managed by the Regione Lazio WeGil, located in the central area of the Trastevere district in Rome.
Through exhibitions, performances and educational initiatives, the association Re:humanism seeks to amplify knowledge on scientific and technological issues, as well as on ethical issues, promoting the dissemination of information and awareness on issues of great social and cultural impact. Re:humanism curated several exhibitions, such as “Don’t You Forget About Me” by the Numero Cromatico collective in 2021 and “Distrust Everything” by Lorem in 2022. In addition, the association has promoted several performative projects for the Romaeuropa Festival in which various innovative technologies have been used to interact and engage the public. The aim of the association Re:humanism is to create a dialogue between art and science, encouraging collaboration and exchange between these two areas to promote research and experimentation.
