Dam, Computer Art History!

By Rhizome

It may be hard to focus on computer art these days, but one might enjoy stopping by the Digital Art Museum. The work-in-progress site is currently tied to a physical location in Berlin, and opens those doors this Saturday, 22 March. I like the simple periodizing proposed on the website -- Phase 1: 1956-1986 The Pioneers, Phase 2: 1986-1996 The Paintbox Era, and Phase 3: 1996-2006 The Multimedia Era. Also useful for history buffs: a timeline that includes many seminal, legendary art and technology projects like Robert Rauschenberg and Yvonne Rainer's EAT (Experiments in Art and Technology and the Cybernetic Serendipity show at London's ICA in 1968. There are holes in this history for sure, but what museum claims a complete collection? -- Rachel Greene
