New Landscapes NFT Symposium

The 2-day symposium New Landscapes. NFTs and the Museum will present new collecting strategies and curatorial concepts of NFTs in museums, analyse ethics and dynamics of DAOs as well as generative work in analogue and digital space, in short: it is about a critical examination of NFTs, blockchain and new technologies. The symposium will focus on the new way art museums deal with NFTs and what this can mean for the future of museums, from new collection concepts and legal innovations to questions of restitution. Guests will include Christiane Paul (Whitney Museum), Annet Dekker (University of Amsterdam), Domenico Quaranta (Accademia di Belle Arti, Brera), and Harm van den Dorpel (media artist, Berlin).

The symposium at Museum Folkwang and online will be accompanied by two workshops and will be held in English.
