Featuring Émilie Brout and Maxime Marion, Shu Lea Cheang, Sarah T Gold, Jennifer Lyn Morone, Rob Myers, The Museum of Contemporary Commodities (MoCC), the London School of Financial Arts and the Robin Hood Cooperative.
The Human Face of Cryptoeconomies exhibition opens at Furtherfield Gallery in the heart of London’s Finsbury Park, as part of Furtherfield's Art Data Money programme.
This show presents artworks that reveal how we might produce, exchange and value things differently in the age of the blockchain.
Appealing to our curiosity, emotion and irrationality, international artists seize emerging technologies, mass behaviours and p2p concepts to create artworks that reveal ideas for a radically transformed artistic, economic and social future.
As part of the Art Data Money programme – in workshops and walkshops, hacking, play, jargon-busting discussion, hands-on-exercises, and artistic techniques, we will collaborate and explore how data, finance, and blockchain technologies might benefit us all.
The Human Face of Cryptoeconomies is part of Art Data Money, Furtherfield's new programme of art shows, labs and debates that invites people to discover new ways for cryptocurrencies and big data to benefit us all. It responds to the increasing polarisation of wealth and opportunity, aiming to build a set of actions to build resilience and sustain Furtherfield's communities, platforms and economies.
