Ruth Catlow is an artist, researcher, curator and Co-Director of Furtherfield. She leads award-winning experiments with blockchain and web 3.0 for fairer and more connected cultural ecologies and economies. Projects include Larps for planetary-scale interspecies justice and the CultureStake app for collective cultural decision-making using QV on the blockchain. She is Co-PI at the Serpentine Galleries Blockchain Lab and co-editor of ‘Radical Friends – Decentralised Autonomous Organisations and the Arts’ with Penny Rafferty.


In recent years DAOs have been heralded as a powerful stimulus for reshaping how value systems for interdependence and cooperation manifest themselves in arts organizing. The book Radical Friends – Decentralised Autonomous Organisations and the Arts consolidates five years of research into a toolkit for fierce thinking, as well as for new forms of radical care and connectivity that move beyond the established systems of centralized control in the art industry and wider financial networks.
