For the group exhibition THE ARTIST IS ONLINE. DIGITAL PAINTINGS AND SCULPTURES IN A VIRTUAL WORLD Rossner recreated the brutalist architecture of the former church ST. AGNES, designed by Werner Düttmann and Arno Brandlhuber, in a 3D model and placed it in Decentraland. KÖNIG stands on a piece of virtual land that is rented and is the first commercial gallery to show artworks in Decentraland, a virtual world based on the blockchain.
