Anna Kournikova Deleted by Memeright Trusted System – Art in the Age of Intellectual Property

Exhibition opening on Friday, July 18th, 7pm, Hartware MedienKunstVerein at PHOENIX Halle Dortmund

The exhibition puts forward the thesis that the increasingly strict application of copyright law hampers the development of culture as a whole. It proves increasingly difficult to impart this culture by employing images, logos, or soundbites of this very culture. The artists represented in this exhibition explore the question of art in the age of mechanical reproduction, positioning itself differently in a post-Fordist era permeated with digital networks than in Fordist, analogue times to which Walter Benjamin has referred.

Participating artists: AGENTUR/AGENCY (BE), Daniel Garcia Andújar (ES), Walter Benjamin (US), Christian von Borries (DE), Christophe Bruno (FR), Claire Chanel & Scary Sherman (US), Lloyd Dunn (US/CZ), Ramon & Pedro (CH), Fred Fröhlich (DE), Nate Harrison (US), John Heartfield (DE), Laibach/Novi kolektivizem (SI), Kembrew McLeod (US), Sebastian Lütgert (DE), Monochrom (AT), Negativland and Tim Maloney (US), Der Plan (DE), David Rice (US), Alexei Shulgin/ Aristrarkh Chernyshev (RU), Ines Schaber (DE), Cornelia Sollfrank (DE), Stay Free (US), Jason Torchinsky (US), UBERMORGEN.COM & Alessandro Ludovico & Paolo Cirio (CH/AT/IT), a.o.
