We are living through a global, political, and environmental crisis of unknown proportions and destinations. Our human capacity for governance has demonstrated a long history of failure. With THE AI PARTY initiative we have a chance to formulate and test new approaches to the challenges we face by asking the question: Is it time to give another kind of intelligence the opportunity to do it better?
THE AI PARTY establishes a new political party led by an artificial intelligence. Bringing together artists, performance-makers, and AI researchers the initiative will focus on the legal formation of an actual political party in preparation for a series of online and public events.
THE AI PARTY is both a large-scale performance and the start of a new political movement. The realization at Mad House was the official constitutive meeting of the Finnish AI Party. It consisted of The AI Party Headquarters, The Constitutive Meeting of The AI Party and The AI Party Party.
Working group: Sami Henrik Haapala, Kaisa Kemikoski, Paula Lehtonen and Aku Meriläinen. From an original concept by Bombina Bombast (SWE), Center for Everything (FIN), First Kiss Productions (NOR) and Triage Live Art Collective (AUS/GER).
Supported by Arts Promotion Centre Finland, Nordic Culture Point and Nordic Culture Fund.
