Jonas Lund Token is a distributed decentralised autonomous artistic practice that launched in 2018. It aims to optimise and streamline the decision-making process and the strategic decisions concerning Jonas’ career path. With over 180 board members, it’s one of the first and longest running tokenised artistic practices. From time to time Jonas Lund joins the exhibition through a video conference set-up imbedded in the wall and interacts with the visitors of exhibition DYOR.
Jonas Lund (1984, Sweden) creates paintings, sculpture, photography, websites and performances that critically reflect on contemporary networked systems and power structures. His artistic practice involves creating systems and setting up parameters that often require engagement from the viewer. This results in performative artworks where tasks are executed according to algorithms or a set of rules. Through his works, Lund investigates the latest issues generated by the increasing digitalisation of contemporary society like authorship, participation and distribution of agency. At the same time, he questions the mechanisms of the art world; he challenges the production process, authoritative power and art market practices. He has had solo exhibitions at Francisco Carolinum, Linz, The Photographers’ Gallery, London, Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, Steve Turner, Los Angeles, and New Museum, New York among others.
