In order to understand artificial intelligence an approach called critical re-modelling operating within commonist media practice might be useful. Critical re-modelling builds on media archaeology, cognitive mapping, countervisuality, and critical theory; while commonist media practise is framed as a cyborgian approach à la Donna Haraway, critically inquiring and applying computational models. Selected works of art by Rybn, Algolit, and Tactical Tech provide concrete examples of critical re-modelling. The article concludes by arguing that the wider educational implications in humanities-driven scholarship of media cultures need to be reconsidered, in case commonist media practice seriously want to participate in the coming societal transformations of this decade.
