On March 2, 1989, Vilém Flusser gave a lecture at the Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis. The hypertext “electronic book” project was initiated by Bernd Wingert and his team at today’s Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany and completed in 1992.
In 2014, in preparation for the Exhibition “BODENLOS: Vilém Flusser and the Arts”, Baruch Gottlieb directed the restoration efforts, with technical lead Philipp Tögel who was able to restore corrupted files and make an emulation which could be experienced by visitors of the exhibition. In 2020, thanks to DAAD funding for the Flusser Centennial, this visionary project could be made available by the Flusser Club in a new emulation to the public at large.
