Experimental Aesthetics 1959


In 1959, the silent big bang of computer art occurred at the Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna. Herbert W. Franke’s exhibition Experimental Aesthetics combined works of generative photographic art with oscillograms, his earliest works, which were created algorithmically using an analog computer. Here we review this first exhibition, which was subsequently presented in Zurich, London and Munich.
