(Création en 2021)

Downoad .PDF

The creation of the tokenized M2 is a continuation of the original Territoire concept, following the logical development of the original M2, created in 1975 near the Swiss border in France, near Annemasse, at a place called "Chez Mermier". In 1979, it became known as the Territoire du M2 when it was established at Anserville in the Oise region. It was accompanied by a 1000 M2 plot of land and buildings. The M2's land is devoted to actions of all kinds, both in France and abroad, while the buildings house the 11-room government headquarters. Each of these rooms is reserved for specific functions of this state, self-proclaimed and created from scratch by the artist. Over the last 50 years (half a century in fact), the actions produced around this concept have helped to give this art concept and the works produced an existence and a strong historical recognition.

2021  A NEW ERA FOR THE M2 TERRITORY, WITH ITS TOKENIZATION CREATING ITS OWN MARKET, INDEPENDENT OF THE OFFICIAL ART MARKET IN PROGRESS.

Today in 2021, in the age of blokchain, the M2 Territory is set to become even more dematerialized. In 1996, Fred Forest had already anticipated the tokenization process at a sale at Drouot by implementing the access code to the work for the sale of Parcelle/Réseau, which later became NFT (Non Fungible Token) NFT-archeology. The artist having chosen this new name to more closely reflect his origins and anteriority
