Original vs. Copy: Call for papers and art projects | INTERARTIVE


español italiano português ελληνικά


The 75th Issue of the Online Magazine Interartive will be dedicated to the diverse aspects of the current discussion about Copy and Original. We invite theorists, critics, curators and artists who work on the subject to participate in our special issue.

The procedure of copy in the field of art has been widely used and addressed during history. The copy was frequently being used as a way of preservation, in times before the emergence of photography and was widely used by the Academy of Fine Arts as a study, essential for the formation of the artist. However, with the revaluation of the original, highlighted by modernism and widely acclaimed by the artistic Avant-Garde of the beginning of the twentieth century, the copy was devaluated. The emergence of technology and technical reproducibility inspired the artists to think of new strategies of production. Currently, even more so with the digital medium, the notion of copying has changed, making it necessary to contemplate on the subject in order to understand why and how these differences exist.

This Call for Papers and Artistic Projects intends to contemplate on the transformations in the procedures of the copy that took place during history and their link to artistic production. Our objective is to encourage the discourse about copy and the original in a contemporary context.

We accept proposals that consider one or several of the following subjects, among others:

. The procedure of copy in contemporary art
. Artistic strategies of appropriation
. Art multiples
. Appointment and reference
. Rereading and reinterpretation
. Coincidences and the collective unconscious
. Reproduction and aura of the work of art
. Notion and value of the original
. Authenticity and forgery
. Reusability of technical images
. Copy and authenticity in the era of digital reproduction

Texts should be around 800 to 3000 words: PUBLISHNG GUIDELINES Texts

The works and art projects will be published in the form of Online Exhibition (images and short text): PUBLISHING GUIDELINES Artworks
