Blockchain and NFTs: The New Art Market, its Histories and Opportunities
Cyber Attack: Digital Art and Activism conference • 1h 13m
The adoption of NFT platforms and blockchain technology by artists, curators, and gallerists has raised questions about the interrogations and conceptual paths that digital art began exploring in the later 1950s and 60s: What is Art? Where is Art happening? How is it valued? Who is the Artist? Who’s deciding? Who’s buying Art? How are they valuing Art? After considering some of the misconceptions surrounding NFTs and its historical antecedents, these panelists discuss the potential of blockchain technologies, challenges they pose and how they can be driven already now because of war conflicts and sanctions.
