Dam was founded by Wolf Lieser who is a freelance art consultant and gallerist in Wiesbaden. He launched the Digital Art Museum (DAM) as an exclusively web-based museum in 1998 in collaboration with London Metropolitan University.
The artistic positions of DAM Projects span the full range of algorithmic, programmed art, including graphic arts, animation, software and interactive arts: ranging from the pioneers with their self-programmed, computer-generated plotter drawings, to the first net artists during the early days of the internet and today’s offspring of digital natives and the post-digital age.
In 2003, DAM Gallery (now DAM Projects) was established in Berlin, followed by the DAM DIGITAL ART AWARD in 2005. Since 2006, DAM cooperates with Sony Center at Potsdamer Platz, Berlin, where Digital Art is shown on a public screen in the patio daily.
