Hito Steyerl's Drill opens 20 June at the Park Avenue Armory in New York City. The work is soundtracked by sonifications of mass shooting data, performed by Bethany Barrett and the Yale University Precision Marching Band. Hito's works "This is the Future" and "Leonardo's Submarine" are both showing at the Venice Biennale until November, using a neural system we developed for political pyromancy. Previously, Power Plants showed at the Serpentine Gallery in London.
The Neural Auctioneer was included in NeurIPS Creativity Workshop, 2018.
Hito Steyerl's The City of Broken Windows is presented at the Castello di Rivoli in Turin, Italy, in the Manica Lunga gallery, from 1 November 2018 to 30 June 2019, for which we used machine learning to recreate the sound of breaking glass.

Recorded live in 2019, this is a document of Magisphere's descent to the ocean floor to locate the troubled underwater research platform Theta-5. Barely any light reaches these benthic depths, where the station sits mysteriously empty, its consoles still glowing with the last commands entered before the crew disappeared. Following a trail of clues, Magisphere descend further past luminous jellyfish into the caverns of an undersea volcano, where they uncover the final secret of Theta-5.
