Re: <nettime> Bankers on ecstasy (but is the party over?)


just an aside: the artist Simon Denny participates in this year's 9th Berlin Biennial with a three-part installation; each part looks like (or rather, is) a trade fare-style booth for a company that is in the crypto-currency business (Ethereum, 21 Inc, and Digital Asset Holdings); together with an Ex-GDR postage stamp designer, Denny also designed ficticious stamps for these companies. I took a picture of Denny explaining the Etherium set-up during the opening days, two weeks before reality kicking in on Etherium. (In the background you can see part of the equally utopian socialist wall decoration in the hall of the former government building, Staatsratsgebäude, that faces the equally virtual reconstruction site of the Prussian royal palace...)
