REINVENTING THE ART LAB (ON THE BLOCKCHAIN) WORKSHOP
Ruth Catlow (UK)
HANNAH MACLURE CENTRE
Abertay Student Centre
1 - 3 Bell Street
This workshop for artists, technologists and theorists with Ruth Catlow takes a pragmatic approach to building technical and economic capacity in the arts starting with the art lab. This will involve an introductory conversation about how blockchain technologies are developing in the arts and to contribute to thinking about a future infrastructure for art-making.
The DAOWO series is devised by Ruth Catlow (Furtherfield) and Ben Vickers (Serpentine Galleries and unMonastery) in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut London, and the State Machines programme.
Its title is inspired by a paper written by artist, hacker and writer Rob Myers called DAOWO – Decentralised Autonomous Organisation With Others.
Artists, musicians, technologists, engineers, and theorists are invited to join forces to understand how blockchains might be used to enable a critical, sustainable and empowered culture, that transcends the emerging hazards and limitations of pure market speculation of crypto-economics.
This workshop is part of the DAOWO blockchain laboratory and debate series for reinventing the arts.
