SOHO20 and The Feminist Art Project (TFAP) NYC are pleased to present Getting Basic: Misappropriation, Plagiarism, Fair Use, and Grey Areas, a panel and discussion hosted by artist Sue Jeong Ka about the issues surrounding copyright, power, and the unfair appropriation of individuals’ work in art, pedagogical, and institutional settings.
Questions of artistic originality and authorship among teachers, students and peers have spurred constant debate in contemporary art. Such problems within institutional structures are complex when uncredited labor, and violations of artists and cultural workers’ moral rights run rampant in a competitive art world. This system perpetuates asymmetrical power relations, depriving vulnerable contributors due credit and compensation for their labor. This event is a forum for collecting insights and stories from artists, architects, curators, educators, entrepreneurs, lawyers, scholars, and workers about ethical art practice.
