On August 9th 2023, we gathered for a long night of dreaming about the future of intelligence at the Locarno Film Festival. We were an assembly of researchers, cinephiles, designers, passers-by and the people of BaseCamp – 200 emerging artists from all over the world. From sunset to sunrise, we came together at BaseCamp PopUp at the Istituto Sant’Eugenio in Locarno. Our shared intention was to explore intelligence today: its manifestations, its hallucinations and its possible futures. Inspired by cinema’s deep relation to dreams, we wanted to make sense of the changing images of intelligence via the process of dreaming.
You are invited to listen into some of the conversations recorded during or inspired by the Long Night of Dreaming about The Future of Intelligence. They were published as podcasts by our partners Film Comment Magazine and Monte Veritá: Borderlines.
