Hito Steyerl opens Power Plants show with limited 12″ featuring Kojey Radical and Susumu Yokota

The AI-driven exhibition includes a bespoke soundtrack from Kojey Radical.

Artist and theorist Hito Steyerl is releasing a limited edition 12″ to accompany her new exhibition Power Plants at Serpentine Gallery.

Exploring the limits of AI in producing and predicting sound and image, the Berlin-based artist has allowed her specially-created algorithm to ‘collaborate’ with UK musician Kojey Radical. Kojey’s lyrics also appear in encrypted form around the walls of the gallery.

The 9-minute composition, which soundtracks one of the show’s central pieces, is featured on a new Power Plants 12″, which also includes music from late Japanese electronic musician Susumu Yokota on ‘This is the Future’.

The immersive Power Plants exhibition features video sculptures and sigil codes, which allow visitors to explore the relationship between the gallery and the surrounding park, using AR (what Steyerl called ‘actual reality’ rather than ‘augmented reality’) to highlight unseen social and economic inequality in the local area.

Power Plants is open at Serpentine Sackler Gallery until 6th May, and the 12″ is available to order here. Click here to find out more about the exhibition.
