After graduating from the academy of fine arts in Berlin, Joachim Sauter studied at the 'German Academy for Film and Television', Berlin.
Since the early 1980s, he has been working as a media artist and designer. From the beginning, Joachim Sauter has focussed on digital technologies and is experimenting how they can be used to express content, form, and narration.
Fuelled by this interest, he founded ART+COM in 1988 together with other artists, designers, scientists, and technologists. Their goal was to practically research this new up-and-coming medium in the realm of art and design. Until now, he is leading this interdisciplinary group.
In the course of his work he was invited to participate on many exhibitions. Beside others he showed his work at 'Centre Pompidou' Paris, 'Stejdilik Museum' Amsterdam, 'Museum for Contemporary Art' Sidney, 'Deichtorhallen Hamburg' , Kunsthalle Wien, 'Venice Biennial', 'ICC' Tokyo, 'Getty Center' Los Angeles, 'ZKM' Karlsruhe.
He received several awards like the 'Golden Lion, Cannes', the 'D&AD Black Pencil', the 'Ars Electronica Interactive Award', the 'Los Angeles Interactive Media Award', the 'Prix Pixel INA', the 'BAFTA British Academy for Film and Television Interactive Award', ADC New York and ADC Germany Gold, the 'Grand Clio', the 'Red Dot Grand Prix', the "Designaward of the Federal Republic of Gemany" and many other national and international awards'.
Since 1991 he is full professor for "New Media Art and Design" at the 'University of the Arts' Berlin and since 2001 adjunct professor at UCLA, Los Angeles.
