The exhibition in honor of Frieder Nake combines two special anniversaries: On the one hand it was already in 1963 when Nake started to experiment with a computer and a pen plotter, his first artworks were drawn on a Zuse Graphomat Z64 at the University of Stuttgart. Max Bense, professor of philosophy and philosophy of science, inspired Frieder Nake and Georg Nees to use a computer to create a new direction of art. This was the foundation of Digital Art. On the other hand Frieder Nake turns 75 this year. His enthusiasm, his strict position and his commitment to Digital Art is still highly appreciated. Nakes invitation to his friends, who gladly accepted, will show us a diversified exhibition of generative art from the last 50 years. Many artists, most of them have written history themselves, show their selection of representative works. But the focus of the exhibition will be on the art of Frieder Nake, all from his private collection.
