The Thursday Club on February 24th in collaboration with ISEA2011
Istanbul and with the Leonardo Electronic Almanac invites you to a
conversation on contemporary digital identities.
Christiane Paul (Curator), Frieder Nake (artist) in conversation with
Lanfranco Aceti, conference Chair, ISEA Istanbul 2011.
Christiane Paul is the Adjunct Curator of New Media Arts at the
Whitney Museum of American Art and the director of Intelligent Agent
(http://www.intelligentagent.com). Currently she also teaches in the
MFA computer arts department at the School of Visual Arts in New York
and has lectured internationally on art and technology.
Frieder Nake belongs to the founding fathers of (digital) computer
art. He produced his first works in 1963. Frieder Nake is Professor
for Compter Graphics and Interactive Systems at the University of
Bremen, Germany, and has had a long involvement with digital art.
Primarily a mathematician, Nake’s colored computer drawings in 1967,
for example, explored the visual expression of series of matrix
multiplications, imagery that has an undeniable artistic intention. He
has contributed to all major exhibitions of computer art, including
Cybernetic Serendipity in London (1968), tendencies 4 in Zagreb
(1968), and the long lasting Goethe Institute show during the 1970s.
Lanfranco Aceti works as an academic, artist and curator. He is
Visiting Professor at Goldsmiths College, department of Art and

of Transculturalism – London, at the Centre for Creative
Collaboration, University of London
