Crypto art has become an intensively discussed topic during the last few months. New techno-logical and artistic developments influence the art markets; the creation of non-fungible tokens (NFT) allows broader and more nuanced exploitation of crypto art. Therefore, interdisciplinary efforts for dealing in crypto art gain importance.

The event addresses the various facets of crypto art from manifold angles by having the different stakeholders on stage in the arts museum (Kunsthaus).
