The exhibition is a conceptual discourse between Géraldine Honauer's work, and the contributions commissioned by her from Vidya Kelie, Oliver Fuhrer and Johannes Gees.
The symposium provides the framework in which Honauer introduces the world of non-fungible tokens (NFT), a world that has been newly probed for her.
In this context, Johannes Gees will install an NFT by the artist together with the participants.
Prior to this, Oliver Fuhrer will open up his cloud models and measurement systems to the participants, juxtaposing physical spaces with coded ones.
With an interactive installation, Vidya Kelie will bridge the gap between two exhibition spaces.

In his work Samuel Bron (*1994, Zurich) discusses the processes of transformation originating in media culture. His large-scale acrylic paintings are the manifestation of a double abstraction. They are the painterly result of global affairs perceived through headlines and press photography. Yet they also represent the balancing act between ephemerality and fixation on an aesthetic level. The figuration disappears while absolute and immovable pixels take over. Bron transforms press images into colourist paintings. Working in the same principle as an inkjet printer, he reproduces line by line the information transmitted in the CMYK codes. Still his artistic gesture permeates the entire process, from the selection of the press image to the final painting, which thus becomes an iconic witness of the pandemic year experienced mostly through screens.
