‘The OTAKU, the passionate obsessive, the information age’s embodiment of the connoisseur… is one of the keys to understanding the culture of the web. There is something profoundly post-national about it, extra-geographic. We are all curators, in the post-modern world, whether we want to be or not.’ – William Gibson


Sotheby’s Contemporary Showcase is a series of boutique online auctions that adopt a dynamic ‘pop-up shop’ concept, a fast-paced auction format, and exciting thematic presentations. This upcoming September edition will tap into our inner ‘otaku’, an often misunderstood subculture, and redefine these obsessive passions through our tightly curated assemblage of works. Stay tuned for more updates to come!

 「御宅族,狂熱痴迷的化身,信息時代裡鑑賞家的代表……是瞭解網絡文化的關鍵之一。御宅族文化帶有一種強烈的後國族和超地域特質。無論願意與否,我們都是生活在後現代世界的策展人。」— 威廉・吉布森

蘇富比 Contemporary Showcase 是一系列以快閃為概念的小規模網上拍賣。每場為期大約一週,呈獻不同主題的當代藝術品。最新一場 Contemporary Showcase 將於九月舉行,透過悉心蒐集的傑作,審視每個人心底的「御宅族」,為經常遭誤解的御宅族次文化正名,重新了解人類對事物的迷戀之情。更多詳情即將公佈,敬請留意!
