Through the customary communication from Suprainfinit to the blue world – the voice memos – Munknown, head of The Department of Art Investments, is getting across an urgent message to all art collectors about an offer impossible to refuse. As with all offers there is also something else: a precondition to go through a self-evaluation exercise no matter if you are a new collector or a legendary one; or anything in between.
Take a paper and pen and press start.
All ears ready?
