The Age of the Digital Aura?

Livestreaming: 22.05.2021, 18:00 (CET)

 

The online Live-Streaming Event „The Age of the Digital Aura?” explains and discusses the new development in the digital art world/market that is now confronted by NFT’s.

Marie Molins, FR (Media philosophy, aesthetics, digital art and graphic design), will talk about technical and philosophical aspects of NFT’s, opening up an exploration of Walter Benjamin's lost aura through reproducibility that has greatly influenced digital art in its perception and is now challenged through the possibility to merge a non-fungible token with the digital artwork and thus produce a unique, not reproducible piece of digital art. Additionally we will show new NFT-Artworks by Mihai Grecu, Jörg Piringer, *August Parot, and Wolfgang Spahn and open an auction for the artwork “Minneapolis East 38th Street” by August Parot in which August shows his personnel debate about the George Floyd killing. 50% of the achieved results will be donated to an NGO dealing with anti-racism on an international basis.


 

 

NFT - Don't Mind Me.
Exhibition: 28.04.2021 – 29.05.2021
We show:
Mihai Grecu, Jörg Piringer, August Parot.
Location: Markgrafenstraße 86, 10969 Berlin

During the exhibition period the artists will produce continuously new NFT Artworks.
Join our clubhouse event during the exhibition. (Date will be announced.)
Listen to a talk by media philosophers targeting NFT and its curiosity.


With the event title NFT - Don't mind me, our gallery Art Claims Impulse takes up the title of a work that is also shown in this exhibition and opens the discourse space on the subject of the NFT exhibition - Non-Fungible Token.

The Non-Fungible Token is a non-exchangeable sign in the digital world and serves as a certificate stamp to verify digital artworks, among other things. The Non-Fungible Token emerged from the crypto scene and works similarly to cryptocurrency with a programmed formula. The only difference is that the cryptocurrency Bitcoin, for example, produces an infinite number of Bitcoins with the same identity, whereas an NFT only exists once. Each NFT is thus unique.

The possibility of digitally securing a media artwork labelled by an NFT results in a new added value for digital art. A digital NFT is like a piece of land. It exists only once. For the first time, media art can sell works in a comparable way to, for example, painters, as the fear of duplication of digital art seems to become null and void. This is a significant step towards the recognition of digital art in the art market. The question at this point is whether and how the NFT can change the art market. Right after the auction sale of Beeple's digital collage artwork at Chrisities, NFT has inflated into a bubble. It remains to be seen where the bubble will go before it bursts.

NFT, Don't Mind Me refers to the state of the NFT bubble. The title could be interpreted in two ways: either the NFT movement does not perceive the artist, or the artist does not want to be perceived by the NFT movement. With its ambiguity, NFT Don't mind me describes exactly the threshold state in which we currently find ourselves with the NFT bubble. The artists in the exhibition move in this space of discourse and get a ticket for the bubble, but not without calculating the bursting of the bubble.

Saskia Wilson-Brown

French and American by upbringing, Cuban and English by blood, Saskia received her BA (fine art) from UC Berkeley and her MA (fine art) from Central Saint Martins.

A producer and curator for visual art and film, Saskia co-directed the seminal Silver Lake Film Festival, ran international outreach and development for Al Gore’s Current TV, and has consulted on a number of arts, film and transmedia projects, including the P2P distribution platform VODO, DIY Days, TEDActive and Slamdance Film Festival. In 2012, her interest in unorthodox practices led her to create The Institute for Art and Olfaction (IAO), a non-profit arts organization devoted to experimentation, access, and education in perfumery. Through the IAO, she has launched partnerships with institutions such as Goethe Institut, Hammer Museum, Getty Institute, Danish Film Institute and National Media Museum UK (with Tammy Burnstock), Standard Hotel, Atlas Obscura, Huntington Library, Wallace Collection, Silent Green Kulturquartier, Watts Gallery, LACMA, and many more. In 2013, she launched the Art and Olfaction Awards, an awards mechanism for independent, artisan and experimental perfumers, which she has produced in Los Angeles, Berlin, London and Amsterdam. In addition to countless art installations and events, she has also produced large public-facing experimental programs relating to olfaction including the Biennial Scent Fair LA (with Darin Klein) and the annual Experimental Scent Summit (with Klara Ravat). Recent projects include a multi-year exploration of open source strategies in scent-making called Open Sourcing Smell Culture, building and maintaining a perfume garden servicing the Bell Homeless Shelter in Los Angeles in partnership with GrowGood.

In 2019 and 2020, Saskia was a visiting lecturer at the Royal College of Art in London, teaching about scent-making as a creative practice in the MA Fashion program. In March of 2020, when Covid-19 made travel and in-person events impossible, she spearheaded a quick launch of an online division of the Institute for Art and Olfaction. Through artandolfaction.online, the Institute for Art and Olfaction (IAO) team and collaborating teachers served just over 600 people from diverse locations around the world, within the first 30 days. This allowed the IAO to continue its mission to facilitate access to the tools and information of perfumery, while reaching an even wider audience through increasingly affordable, well-researched and authentic online education.

 

Current projects include producing a semi-monthly radio show called Perfume on the Radio and finishing a documentary about ownership and historic reconstruction in the field of perfumery while pursuing a PhD about the relationship between perfume, access and power.

ACI-Surfing with... Aseel AlYaqoub  -  24.02.2021 6pm (CET) / 8 pm (AST)

Now Online: View here

 



 

Aseel AlYaqoub (b. 1986, Kuwait) is an artist who works across the disciplines of history, architecture and cultural identity theory. Her practice is concerned with themes of nationhood, state apparatuses and collective nostalgia to discern why some historical elements fit well within the national narrative whilst others are deliberately forgotten. Using an ever-growing collection of found objects, documents and media, her work explores the construct of new nations such as Kuwait. Through video, drawing, installation and printmaking, she documents the nation’s processes of self-identification and state-making – that happened within pressure-cooker conditions – post-imperial dissolution and re-attachment.

"Welt, gute Nacht" (World, good night.)

In our last exhibition in 2020, the year which is extremely influenced by Corona, we are showing the exhibition "World, Good Night" with works of the artists Shir Handelsman (Israel) and Marc Aschenbrenner (Austria). Although not all of the works were created during this period, they still well embody some facets of the spirit of the times of this period, which represents a caesura that has lost its lightness. The works embody on the one hand the gravitas of this situation and on the other hand the absurd, the eccentric that more or less shapes all our lives. They are both consolation and warning. What remains is the hope that after the night a bright day will dawn and the nightmares will have vanished.
