Good Intentions, Bad Art
‘Good Intentions, Bad Art’ is the first episode in the 'Art & AI' podcast. It can be listened to in the Bringing the Human to the Artificial exhibition.
‘Good Intentions, Bad Art’ is the first of an eight-episode podcast series featuring art historians, literary critics and theologians discussing first encounters with AI-generated art. This episode asks the question, ‘Are good intentions a necessary ingredient of good art?’ Artists have always used tools. But what happens when tools make art?
The Art and AI podcast is a joint presentation of National Gallery X, the Centre for Philosophy and Art at King’s College London, and the UKRI Trustworthy Autonomous Systems Hub.
