The seventh edition of KuvA Research Days, arranged by the Academy of Fine Arts at Uniarts Helsinki will shed some light on experiential practices, pedagogical processes, and supposedly intelligent machines. What is at stake in sensory witnessing? How is the pandemic transforming the art school and its pedagogical visions? How are neural networks and deep learning systems shaping artistic thinking?
