Beg, Steal and Borrow: Artists against Originality (An Elephant Book)
This product is shipped via the most economical route and is estimated to be delivered within 2-3 weeks of placing your order.
`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.
