Digital Pioneers at Electrohype
Electronic visual experiments in Sweden 1960-1980

Before the internet, before personal computers, even before a computer could fit into your living room, people were experimenting with digital technology as an art medium. Always active Electrohype in Malmoe are currently showing a number of digital works from the period 1960-80. The exhibition is done as a collaboration with Gary Svensson who is the author of the book "Digitala Pionjaerer". Here are a few images from the exhibition. Exhibition photos: Thomas Petersen. Artists: Beck & Jung, Lars-Gunnar Bodin, Ann-Charlotte Johanneson, Sture Johanneson, Sveninge de Monér, Torsten Ridell, Göran Sundqvist.

A note: If you have any knowledge of computer art experiments from Denmark in the same period in time, Electrohype would like to here from you! They are trying to put together a similar exhibition about the Danish scene in the same period. Any information can be sent to:
