| Current Visions of the Future

Viewers find themselves captivated by the edgy unconventionality of the works of Christoph Faulhaber, which point out the contradictions and abysses of our society today. In his new cycle he examines artificial intelligence. What at first seems like a phenomenon far distant from everyday life ultimately reveals a fascinating topicality. Marshall McLuhan talked about “art as radar.” It is an “early warning system that allows us to recognize social and psychological weaknesses far in advance.” There is hardly any other artist to whom this applies as much as it does to Faulhaber and his art, which dares to look toward the future in order to show, through artificial intelligence, what the consequences of our present day might be.
