The show will introduce five installations from the last three years, each of which, in a different way, focuses on dysfunctional or undecipherable communication in relationships between man-man, man-machine, and machine-machine. In particular, Lutz examines the conditions, conflicts, and changes which occur in people with the introduction of intelligent behaviour and an assumed consciousness of machines.
The acronym of the exhibition title Interfered Accessed Memories, I_AM, which can also be understood as an independent title and which relates to the inherent context of the works, unequivocally references the humanist declaration “I am” (I think, therefore I am). And thus the question is posed: Who am I, really – in a time when the boundaries between man and machine are increasingly dissolving? (Philipp Bollmann)
