In a wonderful collaboration with Dr. Julia Schneider we created the comic essay We Need to Talk, AI. In 56 pages, the basics, examples, opportunities and risks as well as an outlook and some thoughts on social utopias are illuminated. The project should offer the opportunity to get involved in the topic and to participate in the debates in order to shape the development of this groundbreaking technology. We are looking forward to your feedback and are eager to see what comes next…
In 30 years, will robots do all the unpleasant work for us? Or will they subjugate us to become submissive slaves? The debates on how Artificial Intelligence (AI) will change our lives move between these extremes. There is no doubt that the change will be dramatic. Maybe now is just the right time to start interfering.
This pioneering comic on AI invites you on an 56-page long, illustrated journey through the dimensions and implications of the groundbreaking technology. Discussing important chances and risks associated with AI, this work is a creative stimulus for insiders of the subject as well as an invitation for newbies to get informed and join the debate.

*preview* symbols and questions related to postmodern protest movements (paperback, 180 pages, 170 x 257 cm, Berlin 2013)
Since 2008 images of mass protests emerged globally in increasingly shorter intervals. Starting in Tunisia a wave of protests swept through the Maghreb; a few months later the Puerta del Sol in Madrid and Syntagma Square in Athens filled up with people and tear gas. The movement then caught fire with the Occupy mobilizations in the United States. In due time, similar images from Cyprus, Portugal, Bulgaria, Turkey, Brazil and other places followed. The protests and movements refer to one another in solidarity, exchange digital messages and share a feeling that in so many different places, it‘s about the same thing. Even if singular events happen to function as a trigger, the protests reveal fundamental questions of social organisation: What is the verb-form of democracy? How can a jobless person strike? What is the difference between justice and equality? How does commoning work? Why do we assume identity is a singular issue? The dictionary of a common visual language is a point of departure from which questions of postmodern protest movements based on existing imagery and subjective evaluation are visualized.
