Art Data Money

We are proud to announce a new programme at Furtherfield. Art Data Money
aims to build a commons for arts in the network age, and invites people to
join us and discover new ways for cryptocurrencies and big data to benefit
us all.

While the sustainability and legitimacy of our global systems are daily
called into question, our critical, artistic network cultures point to a
wealth of possibilities for mutual prosperity.

The Art Data Money programme at Furtherfield includes:

- Art Shows where finance, cryptocurrencies and data are made tangible
through critically engaging and feelable artworks for everyone.

- Labs using hacking, play, and artistic techniques to take apart existing
financial structures; algorithms and data flows to discover how they work
and create new more participatory models. http://bit.ly/1NnGKXF

- Debates involving an alliance of diverse partners to generate new
conversations, networks, and ways of organising value exchanges across
traditional divides. http://bit.ly/1XGtl0g

‘AltCoins, cryptotokens, smart contracts and DAOs [Digital Autonomous
Organisations] are tools that artists can use to explore new ways of social
organisation and artistic production. The ideology and technology of the
blockchain and the materials of art history (especially the history of
conceptual art) can provide useful resources for mutual experiment and
critique’ - Rob Myers
