The Distributed Gallery is a collective of thinkers and tinkers engaged in a critical approach toward art markets and artistic worlds.
Disturbed by the overinterpretation of artistic intentions, the Distributed Gallery defends a more sensitive and authentic approach of the so-called contemporary art. Moreover, it wishes to replace in the center of the game the collective anonymous work in which the figure of the artist evaporates.
The Distributed Gallery was inaugurated under the double sign of Dada and Blockchain through its first art work: the Ready-Made Token. Its second artwork, the Chaos Machine.
A spectacular device designed to be reproducible and conceived to burn banknotes, spreads out both in art and blockchain worlds through a double Berlin exhibition in the well-known Schinkel Pavillon and Full Node.

The Distributed Gallery was inaugurated under the double sign of Dada and Blockchain through its first art work: the Ready-Made Token. In 1917 Marcel Duchamp's famous "urinal" was exhibited in New York, a ready-made, that is to say a common object elevated to the state of art by its simple conceptualization and its exhibition in a gallery. A century later, a certain Richard Prince, an artist known for his work of appropriation, launched the Ready-Made Token: the transformation of a cryptographic unit into a work of art. By exploring the potential of Blockchain technology, the Ready-Made Token marked the first conceptual link between cryptocurrency and the art world.

The Chaos Machine is the second blockchain-based artwork of the Distributed Gallery deepening the links between art and money. One year after the poker-like joke of the Ready-Made Token, the Distributed Gallery engaged in a more physical artwork.
