An example of Franke's computer art

Herbert W. Franke († 2022) was not only a physicist, author, and pioneer of German-language science fiction, but also a trailblazer of computer or digital art. In our exhibition we show a selection of his works, prints from the series “Phantastische Welten” and “Z-Galaxy,” and as a colorful potpourri from 65 years of his art production, “Algorithmic Art 65.”

On Thursday, May 18 at 3 p.m., Dietmar Dath will give a brief introduction to Franke’s work. Franke’s widow Susanne Paech will also be present. Meetup is in the exhibition space, in front of Franke’s works.
