Zach Lieberman at MuDA Museum of Digital Art Zürich

The Museum of Digital Art in Zürich curates exhibitions, hosts talks about the relations between data, algorithms and society and offers educational programs for children, adults and pensioners. The museum was founded by Carolina Hirt and Christian Etter through a crowdfunding campaign. It opened its doors in February 2016.

The current exhibition is dedicated to the artist, researcher, and educator Zach Lieberman. Lieberman explores new forms of expression and play. This video provides you with an exhibition walk-through and an interview with MuDA’s Co-Director Christian Etter, who talks about the museum and the current show.

Zach Lieberman at MuDA runs until July 21, 2019. The exhibition features the artworks Sound AR, Suits, Expression Mirror, Drawn, Más Que la Cara and Daily Sketches, and the piece Work work work that presents short video clips by filmmaker Jia Li that provide a glimpse into the daily life of Zach Lieberman.

Born in 1977, Lieberman holds a BA in Fine Arts from Hunter College and an MFA in Design and Technology from Parsons School of Design.
He became known when co-creating openFrameworks, an open-source toolkit for creative coding, and he keeps delighting with a rare playfulness. Such as with Daily Sketches, a personal project started in 2016 that spreads happiness with new abstract animations on a daily base.
Zach Lieberman has been listed as one of Fast Company’s Most Creative People and his projects have won the Golden Nica from Ars Electronica, Interactive Design of the Year from Design Museum London as well as listed in Time Magazine’s Best Inventions of the Year.
He currently lives with his wife Molmol Kuo in New York City where they run their own studio while teaching at The School for Poetic Computation, an artist-run school that he co-founded.
