The clash of the art world with the world of blockchain technology

An attempt to explain the potential of NFTs with curators and art connoisseurs Piera Ravnikar, Tevž Logar, Dorian Batycka, and artist/designer The Miha Artnak

Earlier last year much ado about nothing arose around Mike Winklemann’s digital art auction at one of Sotheby’s most prestigious auction sites. The sale raised many eyebrows, as his Everydays: the First 5000 Days sold for $69 million. The work of Beeple, as Winklemann is known on the Internet, is not a physically tangible work of art, but the digital file has been turned into a non-fungible token or NFT and the sale is tied to the cryptocurrency Ethereum. We could offer that Winklemann’s excursions through Photoshop’s toolbars are of absolutely no artistic value whatsoever, but even a bad example can be a good example to illustrate the potential of NFTs.

In the context of a divided 20th-century Europe, Slovene film aesthetics clearly reflected the country's borderline characteristics. Whilst the influence of social realism was present in Slovene film from an early stage, film aesthetics in Slovenia have oscillated over the years between entertainment and politics, art and industry, aesthetics and ideology.

Osmo/za


Osmo/za is a collaborative space on the 8th floor of the 1960s' Avtotehna skyscraper at Slovenska 54 in the very centre of Ljubljana. It was set up in 2017 by a consortium of three NGO art/cultural producers with a rich and varied history: Ljudmila, which engages in the development and popularisation of open culture, free licences and software, and in new ways of data distribution; Delak Institute, a production house exploring post-gravity art and outlining a path for space culturalisation; and Projekt Atol Institute, whose activities range from art production to scientific research and technological prototype development and production.
