Generative Art Summit Berlin

“I am very happy to be able to take part in this summit organised by the Foundation Herbert W. Franke which is doing such an incredible job at preserving and disseminating the work of a person laying out the path for so many of us and at the same time bringing this community together.”  

Scientists and artists are both curious beings, always looking to make sense of the world around them. Often, there are different languages used in either disciplines. So what is the driving force behind the individuals who work in both realms, and how do they find their creative output within them?
On the panel “Being an Artist and a Scientist”, we will discuss how art can support science in finding a way to visualise and communicate their findings as well as how scientific research can inform art making. This form of art which is heavily informed by the use of technology has until recently been ignored by the art market. This changed when a few years ago NFTs grabbed the attention of the art market.
The panel “How to Make Money with NFTs” will explore the developments of the space, discussing transparency and through that possible sentiments of pressure and strategies in this new market that might or might not differ from selling work in a more traditional setting. Furthermore, the panel will explore what kind of ways this mode of selling offers, be that selling the works yourselves, working with a gallery or collaborating with the numerous platforms that exist.
A lot has changed in the past few decades and I believe all younger artists going into the same directions are eternally grateful for the way that has been paved by older generations. Especially in a time which feels accelerated, it is important to have a dialogue and learn from each other.
