Looking forward to Berlin Blockchain Week? So are we! During Berlin Blockchain Week you will be able to find us at several events:
Thursday August 22. Time: 17:30–19:30
Location: Upvest at Kleine Präsidentenstraße 1, Berlin
With the emergence of DAOs (Decentralised Autonomous Organizations) and the recent advancements in crypto-economics, we may be at the verge of a rapid shift in the way that cultural work is organised and financed. While blockchain offers a new artistic medium and new potentials for the regeneration of autonomous community-based artistic practices, it also raises entirely new sets of challenges. What impacts will blockchain technologies have for artists, activists, and cultural organizers seeking to create an art world less reliant on institutions and states, outside of the confines of the legacy systems?
We invite members of the local and visiting artistic communities, and blockchain researchers, with guests speakers from both fields, to take part in an open discussion on the relationships between art, community, and blockchain technologies. So be ready for debating, networking, and discussing projects you are involved in!
Participating in the panel talk:
Jeff Emmett is a Token Engineering researcher, with a focus on cryptoeconomic primitives, such as Token Curated Registries and Bonding Curves. Working with Giveth, and the Commons Stack teams, he is helping to rethink the structure of charity in a decentralized world, and to forward the practice of Token Engineering for robust blockchain ecosystems.
Fanny Lakoubay is a New-York-based communication and marketing specialist with 12+ years of experience in arttech and blockchain.

Founder of C.A.S.A. and summoner of the Trojan DAO. As “artist as organizer” James Simbouras uses concepts taken from cymatics, the study of the interactions between sound and matter, as a metaphorical framework so as to discuss the relationship of communities to “ephemeral” social art-works/situations, and the shifting definitions of art and so-called art economy, emerging out of the urges and the inter-dependencies that is the Athenian context.
Raimar Stange is an art critic and curator based in Berlin, Germany. He contributes regularly for Kunst-Bulletin (Zurich), Camera Austria (Graz), ArtReview (London), artist (Bremen), artagenda, web, artmagazinecc/web; and curates shows on art and climate catastrophe, art and right-wing populism.
Stefan Römer is a de-conceptual artist working with images, sounds and textes to overwork the terms of the artistic public space, the original and the intellectual interest (the economy of passions) in the field of art.
