Joachim Sauter co-founded Art+Com in the mid eighties in Berlin. The company evolved from an interdisciplinary group of designers, architects and artists from the Berlin University of the Arts as well as hackers from the ChaosComputerClub. The group used the upcoming digital technology not only as a tool, but potential (mass) medium. Founded as an non-profit organisation to explore the new medium’s possibilities for art, design, science and technology, Art+Com did not commence commercial projects not before the mid 1990s.
