CONF: NFTs and their Impact on Art Creation, Curation, and Commerce (Kassel, 21-23 Jul 2022)

Over the last couple of years, Non-Fungible Tokens stormed into the creation of arts and, even more so, the art market. New forms of visual arts have developed, and existing artworks are increasingly represented by NFTs. Some of them gain outraging prices. Nevertheless, the general comprehension of what exactly NFTs are, how they influence the creation of visual art, what their legal effects are and should be, and how they affect incentives and values in art markets is far from complete. The conference assembles artists, lawyers, and economists from outstanding institutions to discuss these issues.

The conference will take place during documenta 15, and is jointly organized by the Blockchain Center of the University of Kassel, the Kassel Kunsthochschule, the documenta Institut, and the documenta archiv.
