Robert Shore con Beg, Steal and Borrow: Artists Against Originality (An Elephant Book)

Reseña del editor 'Art is theft,' Picasso once proclaimed. The wily old Spaniard was being provocative - he often equated theft to what could more benignly be called influence. But increasingly much of the best and, even, most original art involves an act or two of unequivocal, overt theft - an act of simple copy and paste. This book looks at modern-day art theft from all angles: art-historical (tracing the lineage from Duchamp to Richard Prince), legal (looking at recent key copyright cases), cultural (drawing links to literary mash-ups and musical sampling), educational (Kenneth Goldsmith's famous 'Uncreativity' classes) and, of course, in terms of current art practice. It will look at the practices of major artists working across a variety of media. Nota de la solapa 'Art is theft,' Picasso once proclaimed, and much of the best and most 'original' new art involves an act or two of unequivocal, overt theft. Paradoxically, the law relating to artistic borrowing has grown more restrictive. 'The plagiarism and copyright trials of the twenty-first century are what the obscenity trials were to the twentieth century', Kenneth Goldsmith, has observed. 'These are really the issues of our time.' Beg, Steal and Borrow offers a comprehensive and provocative survey of a complex subject that is destined to grow in relevance and importance. It traces an artistic lineage of appropriation from Michelangelo to Jeff Koons, and examines the history of its legality from the sixteenth century to now. Ver Descripción del producto
