The Digital Art Mile, Basel

Artmeta’s The Digital Art Mile conference took place from June 11-15. Panels focused on digital art – primarily Web3-based – and its place in the 2024 art world.

ArtNews reported an interesting comment from CryptoPunks collector Hans Joerg, who stated he would prefer if digital art remained niche. He believes that digital art still garners emotional attachment and appreciation, whereas “art has died” in the materialistic art world. Panel topics included: Physical, Digital, or Both; Are Punks the Warhols of our Time?; and Digital Art – Nomads or Residents. A full program list can be found here.

Humanoids launches KickStarter for English Translation of Caza’s Arkadi and the Lost Titan

Humanoids is celebrating its 50th anniversary with an English edition of Caza’s Arkadi and the Lost Titan. The KickStarter quickly surpassed its goal of $5000 USD, reaching almost $237 000 USD by the end of the campaign. Humanoids stated that the work was “stuck in purgatory” for decades, but has been restored thanks to a painstaking scanning and digitization process.

Caza is perhaps best known for his work in Metal Hurlant, where his work was published alongside founders Phillip Druillit and Jean Giraud.

This is only the first of several planned anniversary releases, teased Humanoids, with Arkadi and the Lost Titan timed to coincide with the 35th anniversary of the original book’s French releases 35 years ago.
