08 May – 07 June 1970
With the exhibition Impulse Computerart, Kunstverein München concludes a series of 3 exhibitions in which the connection between art, science and technology is presented. In the first exhibition of this series, a historical example - Wladimir Tatlin - portrayed the attempt to combine art and technology. The experimental investigations on the effect of color by Josef Albers showed a current aspect on the topic of art and science in the second exhibition.
Finally, in this exhibition a look into the future is made, the attempts to use sophisticated and complicated technical devices for the production of aesthetic formats can and should only be regarded as an initial stage of a development whose conjecture can only be guessed. At least, however, the results available today, and in particular the development in recent years, seem to indicate that art and technology, in this case the most advanced form of technology, the computer, are not as antagonistic as often assumed.
