I see I have no takers on naming a contemporary net.art/finance project! I am wondering if this is because the engagement by artists with new forms of networked finance is really only starting to kick off…or is it?

Has anyone on this list done any artworks involving blockchain or any alt coin forms? I’d be interested to hear what everyone is doing before I suggest a couple of interesting works in this area?
cheers
Anna

Hi Anna,
Christin Lahr has several very famous pieces (MACHT GESCHENKE, DAS KAPITAL)
http://www.christin-lahr.de/ (http://www.christin-lahr.de/)
It seems that the material is all in German, so people who do not read the language perhaps have not heard of it. Here is the only website I could find (in a hurry) with a brief description in English.

Anna in 2015 at the College Art Association there were two Media Lounge Panels on Economics/ Finance. The panels,
Identity, Configurations of Outsiders in Economic Order and Explorations of Alternative Economies brought together as I remember a large number of artists working with new media and economics and finance. Not all of the pieces were net based but as I recall many of them had net components. I particularly remember a few from the second panel but the link here will catalog all of the artists that participated.

I’ve been enjoying lurking in on everyones conversation and promise to post something soon in relation to my own netting….

Thanks Renate and David
. I think there's definitely a (re)newed interest in the relation between art and the economy generally - perhaps intensified in the new media realm because of its relation to capital AND precarious labour...
I raised the question of the specific relation between finance and net art because of the ways in which financial networking has come to more generally subtend all networks
in late capitalism...

Net art's critical relations with finance, then, becomes an investigation of the conditions of its own production. This I think is more critically acute than the ways in which early net art, like jodi.org, investigated the material and formal conditions of code as conditions for its production....

It's also interesting to see the extent to which alt-economies are beginning to be thought via net and new media art. Some interesting work being done by Furtherfield in UK. Here on blockchain and bitcoin: http://furtherfield.org/tag/blockchain-1
Here more generally on money/data/finance/art: http://www.furtherfield.org/artdatamoney/

David - quantum blockchains! wow..that sounds amazing!!!
cheers
Anna
