About Art Tactic
ArtTactic Forecaster was started in May 2012 by Anders Petterson, the founder and MD of ArtTactic and Adam Green, ArtTactic’s podcast host when they decided to launch a Twitter competition on who could guess the auction price of Edvard Munch’s ‘Scream’, which finally sold at Sotheby’s for $120 million. The winner of the competition was only off by $1 million and the Twitter crowd average prediction came in at $123 million. The result spurred ArtTactic’s interest in the general art crowd’s ability to predict outcomes in an often non-transparent, seemingly unpredictable and secretive art market.
In June 2013, Anders launched the very first edition of ArtTactic Forecaster, a dynamic auction quiz game aimed at students he was teaching at Sotheby’s Institute at the time. The second edition of ArtTactic Forecaster launched in February 2014, and has now grown to a community of 500 active players (students, art enthusiasts and auction professionals) who regularly compete for a top spot in the league tables.
