Mikey Assis

I’m a doctoral candidate at the Bard Graduate Center. I specialize in the philosophy and theory of digital art and (new) media and am currently writing a dissertation on blockchain-based art.

My research lies at the intersection of digital art history and material culture, science and technology studies, and media studies. Before entering the metaverse, I specialized in European Medieval and Renaissance art, and hold a BA and MA in Art History and Philosophy from Tel Aviv University.

Beyond academia, I’m also the co-founder of Artfora, a Web3 platform that pairs physical objects with non-fungible tokens, and the co-founder of Artistoric, a gallery for historic decorative arts.
