Ivo Wessel (born in Paderborn in 1965) studied computer science in Braunschweig and moved to Berlin in 2000 because of the young and vital art world the city had to offer. He is a software developer and has programmed apps for the iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, and Alexa-Skills for Amazon’s Echo devices, especially for artists and art institutions. He has been collecting contemporary art and literature ever since his high school years, always trying to combine his three obsessions art, books, and computers. Over ten years ago, he began Videoart at Midnight with gallerist Olaf Stüber, a project that shows video art on the big screen at Kino Babylon: once a month on a Friday, always at midnight. His collection includes concrete painting, photography, conceptual art, media and video art.
