Feminist Value(s) of NFTs: Jill Miller and Alexandra Juhasz in conversation
In 2006 and again in 2013, the musician Ariel Pink released an album, Thrash and Burn, with a huge unauthorized photo of the artist Jill Miller on the cover. On January 21, 2023, she dropped a related NFT project, ARIEL STINKS, on the “curatorial forum” TAEX. Not aware of Miller’s work, but rather mystified and a bit repulsed by the hype around the non-fungible form, I hoped that engaging with her about her project might provide an opportunity to converse with another feminist artist about the use and stakes of this new technology and economy. We spoke for 45 minutes over Zoom about her 50 alternative album covers. This is an edited version of our conversation.
