Format:

Market for Immaterial Value is an investigation into the creation, validation, and dissemination of art in the immaterial economy. Valentina Karga and Pieterjan Grandry, two young artists, look across this capitalist horizon and share their findings, reflections, and ideas. What is the role of the artist in a financialized (art) world?
Apart from creating discursive spaces for sharing the heaviness of financial abstraction, they are also experimenting with challenging market structures in practice. They are researching ways towards a more economically sustainable art practice, not dependent on external funds or on the dictations of the art market's elite. More specifically, they are creating a market in which the public has the possibility to actively participate in the value creation of art. During transmediale, you will have the possibility to buy equity and speculate on the future of this collectively owned artwork.
