Cointemporary has featured art by the likes of photographer Beat Streuli, painter Larissa Lockshin, and installation artists Anetta Mona Chişa and Lucia Tkáčová. The website states it wants the works it promotes to be viewed within a “broader global visual context free from the hegemonic monetary system in which contemporary art is embedded.” By pricing them in Bitcoin, it says, it becomes more difficult to ascribe them traditional value. Its decentralized online payment network also offers a “new form of autonomy in the global monetary system,” which Cointemporary claims does not yet exist in the art world.
