KS – the collection
NFTs

KS – the collection is a collaborative work between the artists Florian Kuhlmann and Roland Schappert to explore the pitfalls, the chances and the opening new possibilities of professional aesthetic products offered as NFT.

„We move in a dynamic field of tension of free artistic production. On the one hand there is the democratic notion of communal exchange and on the other hand the notion of artificial scarcity and uniqueization, which is absurd from a communicative point of view. Original copies stir up a desire through subsequent monopoly and increase the attention of capitalist business models.“

Florian Kuhlmann & Roland Schappert, 2021

First steps into a new world
We take our first steps on different platforms because we want to know how it works and how it feels. We have chosen the platforms opensea.io and hicetnunc.xyz. Each platform feels a little different, each pursues different strategies. We deal with it affirmatively.

ALL, 2021, KS – the collection
ALL, 2021, KS – the collection
ABWEGE, 2021, KS – the collection
ABWEGE, 2021, KS – the collection

On hicetnunc.xyz we have minted the two motifs ALL and ABWEGE. Each in an edition of 100. Minting on the Tezos blockchain is comparatively energy-saving and resource-saving because of the proof-of-stake process on which it is based, which seemed to us to be a sensible platform for high print runs.
