Ariana Dongus & Johanna Mehl – Vortragsabend

Lars Pinkwart

Ariana Dongus und Johanna Mehl unterhalten sich mit uns kritisch über Imaginationen von "Menschlichkeit" im Kontext von Geflüchteten-Camps, die als Verwirklichungsorte für Designlösungen und Technologietests des Silicon Valley dienen.

Johanna Mehl (she/her) is a PhD candidate in cultural studies and design history at TU Dresden, where she holds a Saxon State fellowship and a research associate position at the Chair for Digital Cultures. As a scholar, designer, and educator she is interested in design as a knowledge culture and its entanglements with environmental history, cybernetics, systems theory, and media theory.

Ariana Dongus (she/her) is a Berlin-based critical media scholar, teacher, and researcher. She spent 2018-2022 as a research associate at the University of Arts and Design in Karlsruhe, teaching media theory and coordinating KIM, a critical AI studies group. Her work is dedicated to the social aspects of AI, digital labor exploitation, and invisible infrastructures, aiming to critique today’s digital economies from below. She is currently a Research Fellow at TU Dresden, exploring new forms of labor in relation to machine ‘intelligence’. In 2021, she was awarded the AI Newcomer Award. Her research and writing are regularly featured both internationally and nationally in journalistic reports, essays, and lectures.

Die Veranstaltung findet in unserem Studio in der TU Berlin statt und ist offen für alle, ein Livestream wird hier verfügbar sein.
