from memories that were denied to us, from tales we heard. we demand to feel the world. we created our forceful signs, our path to find our gold. we need to delink from imposed precepts, free ourselves from the illusion that there is only one way of thinking, living, and doing. it's urgent to elaborate on other possibilities, and trace dispersion routes for the de-hierarchization of senses, affections, sensorial fields. there is a necessity to go beyond what is said to be universal, face nature, and search for sites that were violently demoted, exterminated, erased, veiled. it's vital to make it visible, horizontalize the senses, trace dispersion routes, build possible structures to exist. we rescue technologies and knowledge, manufacture possibilities, create visualities. from within our singular world-sensing, we enunciate and propose a way to transform.

NFT DEB Generative Dimensions
curated by Viola Lukács
this collection of human/data engineered artworks takes aim at the avian migration crisis. a tragedy is unfolding. europe’s most iconic migratory bird species are disappearing like never before. in the uk, turtle dove numbers have declined by 95% between 1992—2017. nightingale numbers by 56% between 1995—2018. and these kinds of dramatic population declines are being seen all over the continent. birds simply aren’t returning from their wintering grounds any more. from cyprus to egypt, lebanon to syria, these beautiful creatures are being illegally taken and killed on an almost unimaginable scale. in the famagusta region of cyprus alone, a staggering 400,000—1 million individuals will disappear forever this year. and next year. and the year after that. this, combined with widespread habitat loss through shifting land use patterns and unchecked climate change fuelled by human activity, means europe is facing a full-blown environmental crisis. the hard truth is: this just isn’t sustainable. but, all is not lost. a new frontline has opened up. one powered by the intersection of technology and creativity, and it’s offering fresh hope. unwilling to stand by and watch as europe’s migratory bird numbers dwindle away to nothing, an all-star cast of nft artists and scientists from around the world came together to say enough is enough. something must be done. the seven artworks are the result of nft deb generative dimensions exploring how the design of ai and nft technologies can drive sustainable solutions. featured artists: daïm aggott-hönsch, nina kov, nikita freeboid, judit navratil, gergő sós, péter weiler, barabasilab.

DANGER! NFTs! (Preview 2)
curated by crcdng
no other phenomenon is more controversial, exciting and present in the current art system than nfts. at the moment, exhibitions often focus on generative art, pfps or early crypto artists. this selection from the crcdng collection is different — it presents a number of fresh, wild and dangerous voices: the nightmarish humor of bloody halley. the ironic pastiche of bugdem yener. the political voice of burka bayram. the iconic video game art of estelle flores. the empowering trash of jessy jeanne. the sex-positive feminist stance of kinky karrot. the ascii gesamtkunstwerk of mikado koko. the punch-in-your-face style of miwako. the haunting imagery of psychedemon. the enigmatic girl power of sandy. the mesmerizing collages of thais silva. and the gonzo hallucinations of tornado rodriguez.
