Rapid developments in artificial intelligence (AI) are inevitably impacting the field of freedom of expression and journalism, with both new opportunities as well as threats to fundamental human rights. As part of its Human Rights Academy, the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, together with the German Embassy called on representatives from the media, IT, and the arts to address these effects in a competition. Out of about 150 submitted, 15 were selected by a jury for the exhibition. The winners of the competition will have the opportunity to tell the story behind their pictures.

Prior to the opening of the exhibition, we will have a panel discussion about freedom of expression and journalism in an AI-driven future. The following panelists are invited:

  • Catrin Misselhorn, Georg-August University Göttingen
  • Erkan Saka, Bilgi University
  • Sarphan Uzunoğlu, NewsLabTurkey

This event will be heald in German and Turkish.
