Joachim Sauter

D|MA Free Flow Lecture - Sensitive Skin: Media Surfaces in Architecture and Design

February 22, 2006, 6:00 pm   » 

After studying graphic design and, later, film (German Film and Television Academy, Berlin) Joachim Sauter witnessed the appearance and wide-spread influence of the personal computer in the early 1980s. Feeling a big affinity towards that technology, he immediately left his traditional design and film practice and started to research the capabilities of this new (mass) medium. Fueled by this interest, he founded Art+Com in 1988 together with other designers, artists, scientists and technicians. Their goal was to practically research and evangelize this upcoming, new medium in the realm of art and design. Since then, Art+Com has worked in an interdisciplinary way and develops projects for cultural institutions, industry, the science community and do self- commissioned work.

In the course of his work, he was invited to participate on many exhibitions. He showed his work at ‘Centre Pompidou,’ Paris, ‘Stedelijk Museum,’ Amsterdam, ‘Venice Biennial,' and ‘ICC,’ Tokyo. Since 1991, he has been professor for Interaction Design at the University of the Arts, Berlin, and since 2001, adjunct professor at the Design|Media Arts Department, UCLA, Los Angeles.
