Art Data Money invites people to discover new ways for cryptocurrencies and big data to benefit us all
While the sustainability and legitimacy of our global systems are daily called into question, our network cultures point to a wealth of possibilities for mutual prosperity.
Over the next 3 years, Art Data Money includes:
- Art Shows finance, cryptocurrencies and data made tangible through glorious, feelable artworks for everyone.
- Labs using hacking and artistic techniques to take apart existing financial structures and algorithms to discover how they work and create new more nourishing models.
- Debates involving a coalition of diverse partners to generate new conversations, networks and value exchanges across old divisions.
‘AltCoins, cryptotokens, smart contracts and DAOs [Digital Autonomous Organisations] are tools that artists can use to explore new ways of social organisation and artistic production. The ideology and technology of the blockchain and the materials of art history (especially the history of conceptual art) can provide useful resources for mutual experiment and critique’ – Rob Myers
