Blockchain talk at Fact – Artists Re:Thinking The Blockchain – Book Launch
The blockchain is a cryptographically secured distributed ledger technology that underpins Bitcoin, but has a wide variety of potential applications.
Imagined as a future-artefact of a time before the blockchain changed the world, Artists Re:thinking The Blockchain acts as a gathering and focusing of contemporary ideas surrounding this still largely mythical technology. This full colour printed first edition includes contributions by over 25 different artists and researchers, including: including Hito Steyerl, Rachel O’Dwyer, Rob Myers, Simon Denny, Ben Vickers, Holly Herndon, Theodorios Chiotis, Cecilia Wee, Juhee Hahm and many more. Within the books pages the blockchain becomes a material for a new type of art, a new method of organising, and an urgent subject of critique and engagement.
