From the Ashes

From the Ashes is an interactive AI driven installation, that explores the concept of generating audience interaction through an open, speculative knowledge generation process, targeting missing information regarding a collection of artworks.

The collection in question here, are pieces of Modern Artworks from Germany, that were destroyed following the “Entartete Kunst” (Degenerate Art) Exhibition series. This exhibition was organised by the National Socialist Party in order to ridicule the new cultural currents of Modern Art, that did not align with their beauty ideals and political message. Many of these artworks were destroyed without leaving behind any graphical record of them, therefore we have no way of knowing how they could have looked like. All that remains is a catalogue, listing the all the purged artworks and their fates.
