Presentation

How can cultural industries take advantage of blockchain?
This technology, which allows information to be stored and exchanged in a decentralized manner, without going through a trusted third party, could have a structural impact on many sectors. Creative industries, whose economic models have been disrupted by new modes of consumption and which are characterized by a certain opacity in their value chain, could find in blockchain a solution to many problems.

This edition of CORE talks aims to explore these issues and measure the potential of this technology in the art market as well as in the cultural and creative industries.


Thursday, may 27th, 2021 from 16h30 at the CORE,creativehub.

Your safety being our priority, reinforced hygiene measures will be implemented throughout the event. We ask all our guests to wear a mask and practice social distancing.

The number of seats will be limited to ensure that sanitary measures are respected. Please register online as soon as possible to secure your place.

Meeting & discussions

Speaker: Giuseppe Caccavale 

Giuseppe Caccavale is an Italian painter specializing in mural art (frescoes). His works are mainly inspired by the Italian Renaissance and are notably made from natural elements: Wood, glass, hollowed wood ... Although his career is dotted with the many works he has done, his artistic approach nevertheless tends towards elements and more precisely, their essence. The design of his works is not guided by linearity, but rather focuses on the natural process of creation.

Projections, stories of experiences and meeting

Speaker: Antonin Simon Giraudet

Artist, Performer and Designer, Antonin SIMON GIRAUDET alias Octo / Arcane tells a universe carrying turbulent symbolism to erect body-icons in which weave the codes of the strange and modern mythologies. His practice consists in embodying typological characters in sculptural silhouettes, supernatural effigies of the musical scene and the Game. It is through them that the performative character of the garment is defended in his work. Lyricism, absurd and surrealism coexist in his clothing proposals with artifacts drawn from industrial imagery, thereby achieving a chimerical desire to open a breach for the "Creatures" in everyday normativity. He thus developed a very particular affection for the textile built in the form, and the ennobling of the materials as the basis of creation of the garment. The work of the hand on the textile becomes in its achievements a logic of construction.
