Avant-garde artistic movements of the past two centuries have much in common. Briefly, these currents tend to include a decreasing focus on technique and physicality, an increased focus on disruption, on ideals, on undiluted artistic inspiration, a rejection of tired historical narratives and a rejection of the status quo, and a pervasive dissatisfaction with the increasing alienation and dehumanization brought on by industrialization and modernity. This is the nature of transgressive art.
The strongest bond between these movements are — especially from the perspective of the artist — the primacy of intellectual freedom and inspiration. For the symbolists, this meant…
The crypto community and the crypto art scene reflect the cultural evolution born of technological changes that have spurred rapid, seismic shifts in the broader online landscape. In order to understand and appreciate the underlying values of the crypto community (and the art associated with it), one must be able to place the movement in a broader historical context, technologically, culturally, and artistically speaking.

The Museum of Crypto Art (M○C△) began as an idea to build an immersive Metaverse Museum in partnership with artists who tell the story of the crypto culture zeitgeist. We believe that artists creating crypto art lend a visual language to a new socio-economic paradigm.
M○C△ will become a decentralized publicly owned arts and culture project governed and curated by $MOCA holders. Artists, collectors, projects, and creative communities who are $MOCA holders decide the Museum’s trajectory and gain access to experiences within the Museum.
The M○C△ Economic Model reflects our commitment to empower artists, technologists, collectors, and strategic partners. It encourages collaboration to make a lasting generational impact.
We seek to grow an inclusive community and invite a sense of shared stewardship.
The following text explains how M○C△, a public good, will become the epicenter of crypto arts and culture.
M○C△ invites all to experience the stories that are defining art and digital ownership. Members will be able to socialize with artists, immerse themselves in online cultures, art installations, and experiences throughout the M○C△verse, while participating in the curation of the Permanent Collection.
Our mission is to preserve the truth. A common truth is found when many voices are heard.

What follows is the M○C△ mission.
