Contemporary culture is shaped by information technology, in particular, artificial intelligence applications. One of the goals of this paper is to analyze how artistic practices could use machine learning algorithms as racial resistance. In addition, to remove from the black box how these applications work by relating the technical process that artists face. It will analyze the aesthetic and narrative perception around artificial intelligence, racism in the creation of data sets to train these algorithms and the possibilities that artificial intelligence opens to rethink concepts such as intelligence and imagination. This research is framed from the posthumanist subjectivity that uses critical imagination to question the classic and Eurocentric definition of human as a measure of what surrounds us. Finally, I will describe the work of the contemporary artist Linda Dounia and her interest in incorporating her experience as a Senegalese woman in the training of Generative Adversarial Networks models to reflect on her identity.
