The KONGSBERG seminar focuses on art and is an open informative seminar project with the goal of promoting engaged conversation about the traces of today’s worldwide technology industry in a local community as Kongsberg. High technology and humanity are highly topical issues today in a rapidly changing world. Artificial intelligence, biotechnology, algorithms and Big Data are major challenges that give us a future we do not know. Can art be a tool for identity, meaning and understanding in a future where man as subject is challenged?
