The blogger conference re:publica was a big success and even made it in the major german news show tagesthemen. I met a lot of people and saw many interesting lectures. Especially Julian Klücklichs lecture on MMOs, dystopia and utopia was very good. Except the typical technical problems my lecture on thursday went very well. The picture shows the Google Map pin which I build for Plazes a while ago at republica.
Behind the screens. 50 years of computer art.
Online, interactive and endless ones and zeroes in algorithms and coding; digital art, in all its forms and designs, is occupying an increasingly important place. And not only that. The growth and developments in the field of digital art also force us to think about the definition and meaning of concepts such as ‚unique‘ and ‚authentic‘. With more than 50 works by 29 artists, the group exhibition Behind the screens – 50 years of computer art shows the various forms of digital art and the developments from the 1970s to the present. A large part of the works of art in this exhibition come from a private collection from Apeldoorn, which includes a number of iconic works of art and gives an impression of the development of digital art.
