Description

MPTY aims to help contemporary artists and public art institutions explore the possibilities of web3. **Problem** **Hurdles for contemporary artists:** Despite the steep development of the NFT market since 2020: Many visual artists still have a certain skepticism about the NFT space and are facing entry hurdles **The pressure of experience in museums:** A museum has to keep up with the times in order to remain interesting. Many public institutions of contemporary art have not yet built up an NFT art collection. **Financial deficit of museums:** Museums depend on public and private funding. **Idea** MPTY regularly invites curators to show invisible artworks, so-called *empty canvases*, or unrevealed NFTs. Only when the artwork is donated to a museum by the buyer does it reveal itself. The NFT of the artist goes into the museum's collection. The artist gets exposure and earns from the initial sale **What’s in it for buyers?** Buyers can sell or become benefactors that support a museum with the donation of the art work. Art donors enjoy an excellent reputation among art lovers. They are grateful for the opportunity to see the artwork.
