If we assume that mankind is unique in the universe and is a result of a beautiful accident of evolution, then today we are facing a moment in time where we take evolution into our own hand by designing intelligent and maybe even conscious machines. This road will change our understanding of who we are and determine what we will become.

If we assume that mankind is unique in the universe and is a result of a beautiful accident of evolution, then today we are facing a moment in time where we take evolution into our own hand by designing intelligent and maybe even conscious machines. This road will change our understanding of who we are and determine what we will become.

The exhibition – A Beautiful Accident – wants to trigger our imagination, to reflect and speculate on possible scenarios to come, in which we are equiped with tools that have the potential for radically (re-)designing mankind’s destiny in a presumably irreversible way.
