AESTHETICA refers to the philosopher Max Bense´s publication of the same name from 1965. Simultaneously, he initiated the first exhibition of Georg Nees´s algorithmically generated plotter drawings at TH Stuttgart´s campus gallery. That same year, other exhibitions of Frieder Nake in Stuttgart and Michael A. Noll in New York followed. Fifty years later, the computer as a tool has decisively inspired and expanded 21st century art. Net art, software art and interactive installations are just a few examples of the varying creative directions.
