Original Artist statement:
"Funky Fingers" is an artistic statement to raise awareness of the non-functional artist help funds during the COVID-19 pendemic in 2020/21.
It is especially directed to the artist support scholarships promised by the bavarian government in October 2020. The scholarships were promised to be available to aspiring artists in january of 2021 with a total budget of 25Mio€ (5k per scholarship). Three months late, at the end of march, the application form finally became available. Though until today, I am not aware of any paid out money. My application is under review for over a month now and emails asking for a timeline are left unanswered.
Over time "Funky Fingers" became a tool to protest lot's of different grievances. bleeptrack especially used it to visually underline her strong rejection on the use of NFTs (Non Fungible Tokens).
