Wolf Lieser

Director, DAM Gallery

Wolf Lieser, originally an artist working with photography, started his career in the art world by managing an artist friend. Since 1990 he operated as an art consultant, mostly developing art projects for companies. In 1994 he opened his first gallery in Wiesbaden, Germany. In 1998 he founded the Digital Art Museum [DAM], an online museum, which was developed in collaboration with Metropolitan University, London between 2000 and 2002. At the same time he managed Colville Place Gallery, London, together with Keith Watson, the first commercial gallery dedicated to Digital Art in London. In 2003 he relocated to Berlin, where he opened DAM Berlin, the commercial addition to the online-museum with the purpose to develop a market for artists in the digital context. In 2005 DAM launched the DAM DIGITAL ART AWARD |DDAA|, a biannual lifetime-award for pioneers in Digital Media, in cooperation with Kunsthalle Bremen and Agentur LOHNZICH, which was bestowed until 2012. His book “Digital Art” was published in 2009 in 6 languages by h.f.ullmann Publishing . From 2010 to 2012 DAM operated an additional gallery in Cologne and from 2013 – 2014 in Frankfurt/Main. Since 2006 DAM collaborates with Sony Center am Potsdamer Platz, which presents several times a day Digital Art on a large public video screen in the center of Berlin. Wolf Lieser has lectured at various institutions like the Sorbonne University, Paris, Kunsthalle Bremen, University of Bournemouth, the Berlin-Brandenburgischen Akademie der Wissenschaften and the Universität der Künste in Berlin, beside festivals and conferences in Europe and abroad.
