BEFORE THEY DELETE THIS
On 9th December 2018, the CEO of cryptocurrency exchange Quadriga CX dies. Gerald Cotten personally held the passwords to customers' digital wallets, thereby rendering $190 million lost or missing. The mysterious death sparked a flame of conspiracy theories and was the beginning of an online hunt for the truth.
The exhibition is an iteration of Cryptoheaven – Letta Shtohryn’s artististic speculation about the digital afterlife of Gerrald Cotten. The second chapter, Before they delete it, is the result of collaboration between Letta Shtohryn and curator Kat Zavada. This time the speculation will look at Cotton through a bespoke methodological framework inspired by conspiracy theories.
We strongly recommend you to take the quiz – How prone to conspiracy theories are you?. Based on the result you will be redirected to the adequate exhibition page and you will encounter the full exhibition experience. The path to the Truth depends on you.
