NFTs (Non-Fungible Token) are ghosts of property, fictitious experiences of ownership glancing back at us through our screens. Starting from this proposition, Geraldine Juárez will discuss ideas around her luddite essay The Ghostchain (or taking things for what they are) in relation to art, artworkers and institutions, packets and websites, content and platforms, assets and blockchains.

Lecture in English.

The lecture will take place at the Max Bense Forum in the Stuttgart City Library in cooperation with the Merz Akademie.

Admission: 4 euros, reduced rate 2.50 euros. Admission is free for students of the Merz Akademie.
