Description The Black Box curatorial research project was launched in the spring of 2020 during the new coronavirus pandemic. Its aim was to point out the problems faced by Czech visual artists at that time and to support them in their work. The curatorial team of Galerie TIC supported selected artists in the form of an open call, who reflected on this extraordinary situation or participated in it in the form of civic initiatives. We decided to present the collected set of works of art and their documentation in the form of an online exhibition project and a double curatorial approach, which will allow visitors to compare two interpretations of the visual traces of the pandemic. In the first case it is a curated collective subject of the TIC Gallery (Only lovers will survive) and in the second case we experimented with the use of a curated object in the form of artificial neural networks (New Archivist). In the presentation we focused on the procedure and results of the work of the New Archivist. We presented and evaluated the benefits of using artificial intelligence as an interpretive tool with a focus on the issue of staging the results of cognitive processes of non-human entities.
