I'm enraged: A company called @globalartmuseum has begun minting NFTs of works in the @rijksmuseum collection. They claim "Any revenue derived from sales or rental will be shared with the museum" to help them during the COVID. How? Does the museum know about this??
Would love to see a rapid response from @MuseumDirectors @caavisual and investigation by @rpogrebin @the_gray_market et al. It's getting ugly out there, fast.
The use the title "The Rijksmuseum Collection" and the website link at the bottom here goes to the Rijksmuseum website. I would love to know if the @rijksmuseum knows about this.
I literally just stumbled across this while searching for rip-offs of Duchamp’s Fountain on @opensea. I wonder if they know this is on there?

This post has been 25 years in the making.

On December 22, 1995, I was diagnosed with Type 1 (aka juvenile) diabetes. I was 12 years old.

But today, I don’t want to talk about how I’m diabetic.

I want to talk about how I’m disabled.
Until now, I have never identified that way. Even though I’ve always known that I am legally disabled (according to the federal government), I never claimed disability as an identity.
Despite the endless hardships and limitations (and brushes with sudden death), I didn’t feel “entitled” to it: I’m not “really” disabled, I told myself—not like someone who uses a mobility aid, or who is blind or deaf.
