Generative Art Summit Berlin

“I met Herbert W. Franke for the first time in 1973. It was in Zagreb at the exhibition “Tendencije 5” where new tendencies of art – from Op-Art to  computer art – where shown again. My computer graphics were exhibited there. As an educated artist, I needed a technician being able to code the plotter graphics. I created these works together with the mathematician of the MBB company, Gerold Weiß. With my husband, Dr. Winfried Fischer, Herbert was also connected by a long friendship. They worked closely together in a wonderful exhibition they curated in 1989. It was titled “25 Years of Computer Art” and shown in the BMW Pavilion in Munich.

Meetings with Herbert were always interesting for me; fascinating insights into the world of computer art until today. It is so nice to see that Susanne is continuing on Herbert’s path and that the Summit is a wonderful opportunity for the pioneers to meet again, and additionally get in contact with the new generation of generative arts as well.”
