NFT in Teletext

The 15 artists participating in Teletext is Art were brought together by the “TeleNFT” exhibition in January 2022. The exhibition, produced by TeleNFT, was both the first to store Teletext art as NFTs on a blockchain and the first to show blockchain-based art in Teletext.

In “Teletext is Art” the topic of crypto art is also highlighted. For the first time, Teletext artworks broadcasted in ARD Text and ORF TELETEXT are also minted onto the blockchain. Several works in “Teletext is Art” also thematically address the relationship between the crypto-world and the classical financial world. All the works shown are also intended for sale as NFT.


Teletext is Art is curated by Max Haarich and Gleb Divov.
