NFT ART DAY ZRH announces the programme of its inaugural conference that will take place on Sunday, 12 June 2022 at the Auditorium of the Kunsthaus Zürich. An event that offers insightful conversations through its carefully curated panel discussions enriched by the expertise of catalyst thinkers.
NFT ART DAY ZRH is a collaboration between E.A.T. / Engadin Art Talks and Tokengate. It aims to spotlight crypto art within the wider realm of the history of digital art, whilst building bridges with the art world. NFT ART DAY ZRH envisions a series of conferences and other gatherings that focuses on the relationship between art and NFTs, through the innovation of blockchain technology, historical digital art since 1950s, its market performance, and other components of this complex ecosystem.
On the occasion of the first NFT ART DAY ZRH conference, the E.A.T. / Engadin Art Talks and Tokengate, the founding organisations of the newly developed joint initiative, present an insightful afternoon of talks that dive deep into the realm of NFTs and its connection to the art world, expanding into digital arts amongst other topics. The event aspires to become an annual gathering taking place at different locations worldwide.
Four panels will explore different topics related to the field of NFTs, including an introduction to the phenomena of NFTs and their relationship to the art world, the collecting behaviour and various artistic practices, and the impact the specificity of the realm has on the perception of NFTs.
Speakers include Kevin Abosch, Refik Anadol, Justin Aversano, Georg Bak, Erick Calderon, Primavera De Filippi, Alex Estorick, Patrick Foret, Sarah Friend, Jonathan Ledgard, Anika Meier, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Penny Rafferty, Margit Rosen, Laurent Sauveur, Kenny Schachter, Paul Seidler, and Alfred Weidinger
