Over the past few years a digital art market has emerged, with companies such as Sedition and collectives such as Undervolt & Co having laid important groundwork. More recently blockchain — a technology MUTEK has featured in past Forum editions — has caught the attention of the arts and creative industries alike with the rise of non-fungible tokens, which enable digital artists to circulate their inherently copyable work in limited editions. Hence, are NFTs a sustainable solution for artists to sell their work and control its ownership online? Or are they yet another method of exploiting creative professionals by reproducing existing injustices.

Moderated by British artist and curator Joe Cutts, this panel brings together Eliane Ellbogen, intellectual property lawyer and founder of digital art centre Eastern Bloc, Cadie Desbiens-Desmeules, a Canadian artist known under the name of Push 1 stop, and New York based art market expert Elena Zavelev, who is the founder and CEO of the Crypto and Digital Art Fair (CADAF). Together, they will look beyond the recent hype and provide our community of creators with a better understanding of the ethics, hazards and opportunities of this new method of sustaining digital art.
