Art Future Wars – The culture war between Analogue- and Digital Art

31/10/2020 @ 14:15 - 14:45 GMT

What makes the art world unique is its low level of digitalization. Online sales made up only 9% of the art market in 2019.
But will it stay that way? Will this number raise?
Next to the established art market with its traditional formats such as painting and sculpture, a completely new, digital art scene is emerging. Still largely ignored by an uninformed traditionalist who in particular doesn’t understand the needs and behavior of younger generations, of the digital natives.
In this digital art scene, new formats are developing as well as new, own forms of distribution – like the Blockchain offers. All of this runs past the established art world, i.e. traditional collectors, galleries and museums.

Antonio speaks about political activism. The way that politics relates to my art practice is with regards to Copyright and Ownership. In particular fighting against companies like Disney who attempt to own everything from products to ideas.

Antonio Roberts «hellocatfood» is a digital artist and curator based in Birmingham. Antonio’s work ranges from glitch art to algorave. He has been curating exhibitions since 2011.
