From Net Art to the rise of NFTs in an age of austerity The Blockchain Socialist

    • Technology

For this episode I spoke to Dr. Tina Rivers Ryan (@TinaRiversRyan), Assistant Curator at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery in Buffalo, New York, art historian, critic, and educator. She's been involved in digital art on the internet well before NFTs were ever a thing but has written some interesting critiques about it all.

During the interview we talk about the history of artists using computers and other digital technologies, the interplanetary war in the art world over NFTs,  and some of the realities around the NFT art space.
