The MINDKISS Project aims to make the work of the artist OUBEY posthumously accessible to a broad public. From day one of the Project in an experimental open-ended process a worldwide intercultural and interdisciplinary resonance space for OUBEYs art was created and has continued to develop and grow: the “Expanding Universe of OUBEY MINDKISS”.
Greetings from a Pioneer: OUBEYs Early Computer Art
Even today I can still well remember the excitement and enthusiasm with which OUBEY, back in the summer of 1985, talked about the presentation of a revolutionary new computer with – for that time – unheard of multimedia capability in the ritzy setting of New York’s Lincoln Center. The computer was the Commodore Amiga 1000, and it was presented by no other than Andy Warhol together with Blondie lead singer Debbie Harry. How dearly OUBEY would have loved to own his own Amiga back then.
