“For decades, digital art has been overlooked by museums and art institutions, but now the NFT trend is growing exponentially and starting to become a given part of the art world. This exhibition will offer an almost otherworldly experience. An image flowing from one thing to the next just as our thoughts can stray from one idea to another, creating a sense of natural flow and calm,” says curator Mathieu Wothke.
NFT stands for non-fungible (non-interchangeable) token – a digital resource that represents objects and phenomena in the digital world, such as art, music, playing time and videos. NFTs are bought and sold online using cryptocurrencies and can become extremely valuable due to their exclusivity.

Because it is encrypted in a blockchain, each individual NFT is unique and cannot be copied, enabling the artist to retain the copyright and reproduction rights to their digital works.
«My art is about the interaction between spaces and shapes. It serves as a gateway to the perfect world, often inspired by ASMR. … I want to lull the viewer into a meditative state, and my art defies the laws of physics, gravity and everything that is ‘real’, providing endless possibilities,” says one of the artists, Andreas Wannerstedt.
The exhibition runs through 21 August 2022.
