title: Hiroshi Kawano - Der Philosoph am Computer
type: Solo Show
Description

From September 24th, 2011, to January 8th, 2012.
This was Kawano’s last solo show, just about one year before his death.
The show celebrated him as a pathfinder along the way of computer technology into the arts. Himself a philosopher, Kawano began as early as 1963 – with the help of a professional programer – to write programs for images, poems, sculptures, and musical compositions.

The image above was used for the Invation card.

Besides a large selection from his work Kawano exhibited many of his own and others’ publications – prominently amongst them Max Bense’s phiosophical and, in particular, asthetical texts.

At closing the exhibition Kawano donated his works and archive to ZKM.
