The solo exhibition AI Attacks by Paolo Cirio focuses on the social implications of AI systems, machine learning AI models, and the use of data. Cirio sees AI as a form of automated violence, expressed through surveillance, discrimination, and disinformation. With his work, he challenges power structures by exploring AI for his counterattacks.

The exhibition showcases installations with prints, videos, and artefacts, highlighting his online artistic interventions and activist campaigns and prompting reflection among the general public.

Paolo Cirio is a conceptual artist, activist, and hacker. The central themes he engages with are social, economic, and cultural issues in contemporary society. His interventions and research-based artworks are presented as installations, lectures, artefacts, photos, videos, and public art.

Cirio has participated in solo and group exhibitions at international museums and has won several awards, including Golden Nica first prize at Ars Electronica in Linz, 2014; Transmediale second prize in Berlin, 2006; Eyebeam Fellowship, 2012; and NEA grant at ISCP in NYC, 2017; among other awards.
