On the occasion of panke.gallery's 5 year anniversary, we trace back current discussions and developments in digital art and, making use of the multifaceted framework of generative art, draw a line from early netart activities to recent artistic interpretations and applications of blockchain art.
The exhibition NfTNeTArT – from Net Art to Art NFT brings together nine international artists that use algorithmic or generative systems as their artistic language. Their tools are digital codes and automatisms, which manifest themselves in a variety of unique and fascinating aesthetics. Confronting recent technologies and blockchain applications, the artists' strategies range from aesthetic or narrative, to critical or rather performative investigations. They equally explore the limits and possibilities of NFTs.
Featuring historical net art activities next to very recent works developed specifically for the occasion, the exhibition creates a dialogical environment in which classic network phenomena and cutting-edge technologies interact.
