Generative Art Summit Berlin

“It is an incredible privilege to participate in the upcoming international “Generative Art Summit” in Berlin. Starting from the work of media art and science pioneer Herbert W. Franke and his pivotal contributions to electronic art during the past 70 years, an illustrious list of presenters will discuss the history as well as the latest developments and challenges in machine-supported creativity. I look forward to this wonderful event; it will become a milestone in the history of media art and a wonderful opportunity to shape and think about the future of art.”
