SCA lecture – NFTs

11 Sep 2021

School of Critical Arts presents a free lecture:

The popularisation of Non-Fungible Tokens, or NFTs, emerged as a new facet of art-world discourse in early 2021. Although NFTs had been available through platforms like Berlin’s Left Gallery (established in 2015), the exorbitant cost of NFTs shot them to fame this year. Are NFTs the future of the international art-market? Or are they merely another tech-bro meme?

This evening lecture investigates the hype around NFTs, and raises questions around their underlying ecological, political, and aesthetic logics. An event for the confused, enthused, and amused, NFTs will be explored from a range of perspectives.
