"Pilz intoxication”

99 fungi NFTs in der gallery rehearse, Berlinalog presentert!

March 4 to March 26 May 2023

The ifungiclub is a digital art and environmental project that draws attention to the global decline in biodiversity and other environmental issues. In the exhibition "Pilzrausch" prthe ifungiclub presents 99 of 999 ifungi-NFTs analog printed on canvas in the gallery probst.


The ifungiclub was founded in 2022 by the internationally renowned artist GAMA and the gallery probst. The galerie probst is one of the first galleries in Germany to offer digital NFT artworks in addition to its analogue art repertoire. 


"We remain convinced that this trend will remain an integral part of the art market, which will benefit both artists and collectors."

Anna Probst, 2023


For this NFT art and environmental project, the artist GAMA deliberately chose the mushroom as a motif. For the practicing Buddhist GAMA, the mushroom symbolizes the beauty of life, rebirth and thus the vision of a permanent world. 


GAMA has created a total of 999 mushrooms called ifungis – 99 of which have so far been published as NFTs on the Ethereum-based NFT art marketplace Opensea. Each of the 999 ifungis is digitally hand-drawn by the artist and conveys 999 messages to stop the extinction of species and man-made environmental destruction. Each of the 999 hand-drawn mushrooms was inspired by an animal that is on the Red List. Each mushroom is not only a unique work of art, but also a warning icon. 


"I have hope that the animals that fall victim to habitat destruction will be reborn as new creatures."
GAMA, 2022

The Amur leopard (Panthera pardus orientalis) is a subspecies of leopard formerly native to northeastern China, northern Korea, and the southwestern Russian region of Primorye. Since 1996, the Amur leopard has been on the IUNC red list. In 2007, there were only 14-20 adults and 5-6 cubs left in the wild. Outside Russia, the species was extinct. Through efforts of animal conservationists and following the designation of large protected areas in Russia, the Amur leopard population has since recovered somewhat. As of mid-2015, the population in Russia and China was estimated at 86 wild specimens. This means that the population of the Amur leopard in the wild has more than quadrupled since 2007.

The fur of the snow leopard has been used for centuries as clothing, wall hangings or trophies. Even today, the skull bones, teeth, claws as well as the genitals of the animals are traded. The body parts are also used in ritual ceremonies in parts of China. In addition, its habitat in the high altitudes of the Himalayas is highly endangered. Human encroachment into ever higher elevations is reducing its migratory range.

Our oceans are sinking more and more into garbage. Today, several hundred thousand pieces of microplastic and plastic waste float in every square kilometer of ocean. Sea turtles, like the real hawksbill turtle pictured in the mushroom head, have been found with plastic straws in their noses. In the Pacific alone, there are plastic whirlpools four times larger than Germany.

Tigers have been in high demand for use in Traditional Asian Medicine, especially in China, for more than 1,000 years. Healing powers are attributed to nearly all parts of the body. Even though worldwide bans on hunting, trade and use should better protect tiger populations, superstition about their healing powers lives on. High prices on the international and especially Asian black markets entice poachers to hunt tigers. The black market price in China for a kilogram of tiger bone in 2005/06 was over $6,500 per kilogram. In addition, the skins of the rare Amur tigers are highly sought after as prestige objects by wealthy Russians, who pay US$10-20,000 for them, depending on size. The poacher gangs are organized in most cases mafia-like.

This mushroom shows an oil slick on the water. Oil pollution of the oceans is one of the most conspicuous forms of environmental damage in the sea. Oil enters the water not only as a result of spectacular accidents involving tankers or on drilling platforms, but above all from diffuse sources - from leaks during oil production, from illegal ship tank cleaning at sea or via rivers. Measures such as the designation of marine protected areas, increased controls or the use of double-hulled tankers are now being used to try to contain oil pollution.

The mushroom stem represents the highly endangered pangolins, which are currently one of the most illegally traded species in the world. There is a high demand for the animals, especially in the Asian market. The scales consist largely of keratin, like our finger and toenails, and are used in traditional Chinese medicine, among other things. 

The orangutan mushroom head illustrates another endangered species on the Red List.

The lamellae show desert dunes, which indicate the "desolation" in many parts of the world. The background bears the name of the desert city of Tel Aviv. Israel has managed through consistent reforestation in Negev, to stop the spread of the desert and created forest areas.

In this rough mushroom hat, the issue around rhinos is addressed. Their horns are traded like a drug and are the reason why the animals are poached and threatened. The horn is said to have a healing effect and is also a social status symbol. 

The lamellae refer to (waste) water, which comes daily in excess from private households, trades and industry and must then be cleaned at great expense. Many people in the world have less than 10 liters of water per day at their disposal. This quantity is needed with us already, in order to flush the toilet.

The stem stands for ivory and the illegal hunting of elephants associated with it.

The different background colors of the mushrooms have city names. Thus, this one stands for the city of Monaco.

The ever faster growing cities, with their enormous consumption of resources, present mankind with a gigantic problem. The lamellae indicate the water pollution in the metropolises. Many of the megacities have no functioning sewage system. Therefore, the dirty water flows untreated into the environment. The enormous CO2 emission, by traffic, air conditioning, etc. of these cities has a large share in the melting of the poles.

This mushroom indicates the greatest civilian nuclear disaster. The black background called after Chernobyl and the slats depict the warning sign of radioactivity. No mushroom can be more topical. 

Both the golden head and the golden stem are meant to draw attention to the environmental disturbance caused by gold mining. Large-scale industrial gold mining uses the cyanide leaching process, which is extremely harmful to the environment. The mercury process is often used by small-scale miners.

Beacons show seafaring the way and warn them of dangers. Thus, this mushroom should warn against further clearing and destruction of the rainforest. Every year, 158,000 square kilometers of tropical rainforest are cleared for timber, paper, conversion into oil palm or soy plantations, cattle pastures or for the exploitation of mineral resources such as iron ore, gold, oil or gas or for the construction of large dams . Through deforestation, irretrievable forest is lost, in some cases containing centuries-old construction giants. With every tree that disappears, many animal species also disappear.
