Remastered : The Art of Appropriation / Die Kunst der Aneignung

Description

At first sight, this may seem anachronistic, as we live in times marked by an almost iconoclastic storm of media images that reduces any visual material to the same level of meaning. With regard to the seemingly endless possibilities, however, the appropriation of artworks and thus of a relatively small and, moreover, extremely charged segment of image production, raises exciting questions, with a poignancy that would be impossible when it comes to the integration of non-art material. Like a magnifying glass, this enables a concentrated view of the various aspects of appropriation, providing both eloquent and insightful comments on the field of art and its systems of reference. In combining historic works of Appropriation Art, contemporary positions and works which partly yet have to be illuminated from this point of view, the art of appropriation is analyzed in its unique complexity.
