Course Description 
As the art world is eaten alive by digital tokens, who are the winners and losers in this Brave New Non-Fungible World? How should we navigate the present deluge of hype and orgiastic overconsumption? Whilst the artworld accelerates towards myriad horizons of possible futures, how do we reconcile unpleasant histories and inconvenient truths glossed over in the midst of a digital gold rush? Cryptographic art objects have set in motion a seismic shift in the semantics of ownership, function, and transaction between incumbent and emergent stakeholders alike. Digital utopias, founded in the ruins of our planet. We can surely imagine it so. But is this new world is actually fairer than the old? Wassim Z. Alsindi, the host and creative director of the 0x Salon, will take us through the Futures of Art History and provide answers to these questions and more.
