Description

Always online: art production, presentation and utilization in and with the blockchain

With the boom in NFTs and digital marketplaces, as well as the increasing popularity of online forms of exhibition, partly as a result of the pandemic, significant gaps in the marketing and presentation of digital art have closed, and thus the possibility away from production arose for the first time to remain completely in the virtual space, whereas previously, at a certain point, it was often preferable to switch to physical exhibitions and the classic art market. A development that brings many advantages, but whose effects must also be critically examined.

In addition to theoretical considerations and explanations, we will also deal with the topic practically in the course, create NFTs and at the end of the semester we will implement an online exhibition project, performance or intervention to be developed.

Introductory to the first date (October 4th) there is a short introduction to the topic and an overview of the course. After that, we continue with the first regular course.
