$8,793 Worth of [Art]

Pau Waelder

$8,793 Worth of [Art] is a collection of 159 real and false certificates of authenticity, culled from Sedition, an online platform that sells digital editions of artworks. The title refers to the exact amount that would have been paid if all of the works had been bought as the certificates apparently attest. These documents open up a questioning of the notion of ownership and authenticity in the digital era, as well as the traditional methods of the art market.
