Live radio broadcast at radio.serpentinegalleries.org

The 2017 Marathon brings together artists, scientists, activists, engineers, poets, sociologists, philosophers, filmmakers, writers, anthropologists, theologians and musicians to consider the advent of ‘artificial intelligence’, consciousness, interspecies cooperation, machines, trans-humanism and non-linear time. The Marathon will seek to illuminate the ways in which these fields of exploration leave unrecognisable traces and unknowable apparitions in the present. Taking place this year at City Hall (The Queen's Walk, London SE1 2AA), it will be the twelfth in the series of Marathons presented by the Serpentine Galleries.
