Berlin, March 2021 – UNPAINTED artists Friedemann Banz and Giulia Bowinkel take part in the international group exhibition “THE ARTIST IS ONLINE – PAINTING AND SCULPTURE IN THE POSTDIGITAL AGE”. It is curated by Anika Meier and Johann König and it is held at König Galerie, Sankt Agnes, Berlin. In the gallery, around 70 works are shown by 50 artists, who are at home on social media. In the media of painting and sculpture, they react to the mechanisms of the attention economy and to technological innovations. They digitize painting, visualize data sets and reflect the mobility of images.
And what about art that exists in a world that is digital? To address that question, the gallery is hosting a second, complementary exhibition in Decentraland, a virtual world on the blockchain, where computer-savvy users can explore—via avatar—a ones and zeros version of König. There, more than 30 digital works can be purchased as NFTs. The “land” on which the gallery sits in the blockchain platform was loaned by a collector named Shahin Tabassi.
The exhibition is taking place from 18 March to 18 April 2021.
