Interview at STROKE – Tobias Ledermann (52 Masterworks)
Tobias Ledermann is the co-founder and CEO of a crowd-funding platform called 52 Masterworks. We found this to be a very interesting concept in many respects. Foremost we asked about the democratization of artistic value. Secondly, who are the shareholders of the artworks? The third question we raised who can participate? Tobias Ledermann answered all these questions and more in his interview with Widewalls.
