The exhibition `Code + Poetry´ refers to an aspect of coding, which has been mostly neglected so far - the relationship between the written program and its execution as an artwork on the screen. Since the 1960s the term `Concrete Poetry´ is a recurring topic. It is not a coincidence that the influential philosopher Max Bense plays an important role. His research on the aesthetics of digital art is significant as it shows, that coding can be viewed as `Concrete Poetry´. The group exhibition at DAM Gallery displays international artists and puts the written code into dialogue with the executed software. The software manifests itself as an interactive installation, as a kinetic sculpture or as endless developing software art on a screen.
