Last day to see Connect With Us by SUPERFLEX – visit us today @vonbartha Basel until 4 pm !
Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency to be released into the market in 2009 and is to date the largest of more than a 1000 cryptocurrencies. Based on a mathematical principle of decentralised and distributed ledger, the digital currencies allow for – in theory – unrestricted and free transactions, characteristics appealing to both anarchistic and neoliberal agendas.
In a paradoxical way, Connect With Me translates the intangible substance of cryptocurrencies into sculptures by giving form to the only non-metaphorical image we have of them: progress over time. When initially viewed the sculptres present as modernist, minimal art object. Seen from a bird’s-eye view the motive reveals itself as an image familiar from the world of economics.
