How Devotion to Our Jobs Keeps Us Exploited, Exhausted, and Alone

Louisiana Museum of Art: The Irreplaceable Human – Conditions of Creativity in the Age of AI

I was part of an exhibit at the Louisiana Museum of Art in Denmark on “The Irreplaceable Human,” looking at the conditions of life and work during the age of “artificial intelligence.” The exhibition is up from November 23, 2023 to April 1, 2024.

With works by more than 60 artists, this large-scale, interdisciplinary exhibition seeks to define the phenomenon of creativity from a broad, humanistic perspective. What are the conditions for creativity in society today? And is there reason to fear that artificial intelligence will take over and surpass human creative abilities?

The exhibition The Irreplaceable Human – Conditions of Creativity in the Age of AI aims to create the foundation for a conversation about the role of creativity in our society – and thus also for a discussion about what is really valuable to us. The exhibition presents works by more than 60 artists – with the main emphasis on art from the past 20 years – combined with references to cultural history, science, and literature.

Previous exhibitions of this kind at the museum include Arctic (2013), The Moon (2018), and Mother! (2021).
