The Computer Arts: Origins and Contexts
Thursday, 3:30 - 5 pm
Room 511AB

This session describes the AHRB-funded CACHe (Computer Arts, Contexts, Histories, etc.) project at Birkbeck College, University of London and refers to other similar projects worldwide. The early period of computer arts (1960-1980) is a poorly documented and contextualised period of art history, and it is important that this history is recorded. Many people working in education are unaware of these origins, and many reiterations of the wheel result.
