review: Urheberrecht - Wenn das Recht kunstfeindlich wird

 

Kunstbulletin 1-2 2014

Urheberrecht - Wenn das Recht kunstfeindlich wird

von Felix Stalder

 

Das Gros der Kunstschaffenden konnte es sich lange leisten, sich nur am Rande mit dem Urheberrecht zu beschäftigen. Dennoch, das Thema ist auch im Kunstbereich virulent, wenn auch vielleicht subtiler als anderswo. Drei Probleme stechen hervor: (Selbst-)Zensur, die Behinderung etablierter Kulturinstitutionen und Kunstschaffende als Propaganda­figuren. [mehr]

performance: ReadingClub - A Hacker Manifesto

 

Monday 21 October 2013, 8pm GMT

Online performance session based on an excerpt from A Hacker Manifesto [version 4.0] by McKenzie Wark with Aileen Derieg, Cornelia Sollfrank, Dmytri Kleiner and Marc Garrett.

 

Drawing in equal measure on Guy Debord and Gilles Deleuze, A Hacker Manifesto offers a systematic restatement of Marxist thought for the age of cyberspace and globalization. In the widespread revolt against commodified information, McKenzie Wark sees a utopian promise, beyond the property form, and a new progressive class, the hacker class, who voice a shared interest in a new information commons.

exhibition: Sound Art. Sound as a Medium of Art

 

ZKM | Media Museum
17 March 2012 – 6 January 2013.

Private view/Eröffnung: 16 March 2012. 

 

The exhibition "Sound Art. Sound as a Medium of Art" presents for the first time the development of sound art in the 21th century. From Futurism to Fluxus, through to Twitter sonifications, the ZKM charts the history of Sound Art. However, focus is placed on contemporary practices: with works from 90 artists from which approximately 30 new productions from recent years will be represented, the visitor gains insights into the unique sound cosmos of contemporary art. The sound world visualizes its own exhibition architecture, and the exhibition visitor himself becomes the generator of sounds.

 

Including works by John Cage, La Monte Young, Iannis Xenakis, Carsten Nicolai, Gary Hill, Georg Klein, Alison Knowles, Ryoji Ikeda, Cory Arcangel, Cornelia Sollfrank and more.
Curated by Peter Weibel and Julia Gerlach

panel discussion: Copy Culture

 

Goethe-Institut Washington, FotoGalerie

in cooperation with the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

Wednesday, 14 September 2011, 12 - 2 pm


Kicking off the series is an event centered on questions about copyright and authorship. What does ‘copyright’ mean in today's context and how does it affect artistic practice? Is it an outdated legal construct that cannot adequately deal with the internet as a playground of free floating artistic content? Does it still make sense to link a work exclusively to its producer and an original idea when web content is constantly changing in an age in which an increasing number of people upload, distribute and modify films, images and text? What is the role of the artist in this new setting?

 

Expert panelists include:
Michael Bell-Smith (New York-based artist), Lauren Cornell (Executive Director, Rhizome, and Adjunct Curator, the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York), Jeffrey Cunard (copyright and cyber law expert at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, Washington, DC), and Cornelia Sollfrank (Berlin and Dundee-based artist and researcher).

conference: confusion identitaire



Rencontre avec Christophe Bruno, commissaire de l’exposition "Identités précaires", Emmanuel Guez, philosophe et chef de projet à La Chartreuse – Centre national des écritures du spectacle de Villeneuve-lès-Avignon, Inès Sapin, critique d’art, et Cornelia Sollfrank, artiste.

Cette conférence, organisée à l'occasion de l'exposition "Identités précaires" (cycle "Side Effects"), présentée sur l'espace virtuel du Jeu de Paume jusqu'au 15 septembre, est consacrée aux phénomènes d’instabilité et de confusion identitaire dans le contexte du réseau Internet. À l’heure où l’information mondiale se heurte aux paradoxes de la transparence et du secret d’État, se développe une véritable industrie de l’identité : surveillance et traçabilité des flux d’informations, gestion des stocks narcissiques dans les réseaux sociaux, procréation artistique assistée, reformatage des idéologies et des identifications collectives...
Ces nouveaux modes de normativité sont mis en question par des stratégies de brouillage des genres et du genre, d’affaiblissement des formes, et autres performances à la limite du discernable.

À l'auditorium, le vendredi 1er avril à 19 heures.

exhibition: culture(s) of copy

Another Originality @ Edith-Ruß-Site for Media Art

'Culture(s) of Copy.' An Exhibition about Art and Copy.
November 26th, 2010 – February 20th, 2011
Opening: Thursday, November 25th, 2010, 7 p.m.

The exhibition “Culture(s) of Copy” is about the phenomenon of the copy as a global cultural strategy. The discussion of intellectual property, which could come to mind in dealing with the Asian context, is deliberately excluded, as it has already been treated in diverse ways. The copy is understood positively as a remake, a cultural translation and conversion. The phenomenon of the copy or remake is seen as an opportunity to understand and reflect on cultural differences beyond the dichotomy of east and west.

Conceptual Paradise – Artistic Practice in the Age of the Social Web

Public discussion between Cornelia Sollfrank and Stefan Römer

Kunstraum der Leuphana Universitaet Lueneburg, Halle 25

Tuesday, November 16, 2010, 6 pm

The Internet artist Cornelia Sollfrank and the de-conceptual artist and theorist Stefan Roemer will meet to engage in a staged, public conversation. First, Cornelia Sollfrank will review her own practice as a net artist and address issues resulting from her engagement with Conceptual art. Questions having to do with “genealogy” will lead to a direct overlapping with Stefan Roemer’s film and Wiki »Conceptual Paradise«, which will then serve as a starting point for a conversation on the possiblility and impossibility of updating the notion of the Conceptual.

exhibition: Dog is my co-pilot

Dog Is my co-pilot uses the theme of dogs as an excuse to present a series of works that actually rather deals with the human psyche and perception than with dogs. The works have in common that dogs figure in them all somehow or other. Besides forming a thematic structure, the choice of works represents a wide range of historical perspectives as well as varied experimental approaches to the media. [Read more]

The exhibition forum Shanghai-Hamburg (urban public) Space addresses the issue of city development and public space in Hamburg and Shanghai presenting new artistic strategies such as "New Genre Public Art" or "Art in the Public Interest.” The artistic practices transcend the common understanding of art as representation to an understanding of art as a cultural investigation and intervention.
Due to the pressure of the local authorities the opening on the 8th of October 2010 had to be cancelled and the exhibition could not take place as originally planed. As a response to the prohibition, the website is converted into an alternative exhibition space to document the urban interventions and to offer a download section—the URBAN TOOLBOX. Sound-documents and posters and postcards can be downloaded for further usage, distribution and dispersed interventions.

exhibition: culture(s) of copy

anonymous_Warhol-flowers in Hongkong

Goethe-Gallery, Goethe-Institut and Hong Kong Film Archive

22 June extended until 15 August 2010. Presented by Goethe-Institut Hongkong and Edith Russ Site for Media Art in collaboration with Hong Kong Film Archive

The exhibition “Culture(s) of Copy” is about the phenomenon of the copy as a global cultural strategy. The discussion of intellectual property, which could come to mind in dealing with the Asian context, is deliberately excluded, as it has already been treated in diverse ways. The copy is understood positively as a remake, a cultural translation and conversion. The phenomenon of the copy or remake is seen as an opportunity to understand and reflect on cultural differences beyond the dichotomy of east and west.

Artists: Candice BREITZ (Factum/ Germany), Sven DRÜHL (Constructed Landscapes/ Germany), Harun FAROCKI (Immersion/ Germany), Omer FAST (Talk Show/ Germany), Anna JERMOLAEWA (Kremlin Doppelgänger/ Austrian), LEUNG Chi Wo + Sara WONG 梁志和 + 黃志恆 (He was lost yesterday and we found him today/ Hong Kong), QIU Anxiong 邱黯雄 (The New Sutra of the Mountains and the Oceans/ China), Cornelia SOLLFRANK (Anonymous Warhol Flowers/ Germany), Pilvi TAKALA (Real Snow White/ Finland), WONG Hoy Cheong 黃海昌 (Re:looking/ Malaysia), XU Zhen 徐震 (8848-1.86/ China), ZHANG Peili 張培力 (Last Words/ China)

screening: cease & desist art: yes, this is illegal!

I DON'T KNOW @ Live Performers Meeting

Brancaleone, Via Levanna 13, 00141 - Rome, Italy – 27 May, 2010

 

Cease & Desist Art by Simono Lodi: For some years now, it has become common among digital artists to focus on illegal art practices. Countless Cease & Desist letters have been sent out by companies to pirates, plagiarists, hackers and disturbers, which are shown off as trophies in exhibitions, web communities and mailing lists. Action artists promote controversial forms of art, using guerilla tactics to protest against the fairness of copyright and intellectual property laws.

Receiving a Cease & Desist letter has become the latest badge in championing the freedom to create in the Corporation Age. Any artist interested in taking part in the movement chooses a good lawyer rather than a good gallery owner. What is happening to the future of art? What rights and freedoms are these artists championing? Does all this have something to do with the end of techno-utopias?In what way has business co-opted the values of hackers, exploiting open source initiatives, web freedom and on-line equality and sparking the use of these practices?

exhibition: Agents & Provocateurs

HMKV Medienkunstverein Dortmund, U-Turm

 

14. Mai – 18. Juli 2010, Eröffnung: 14. Mai, 18 Uhr

 

Agents & Provocateurs — eine Ausstellung mit über 30 internationalen Künstlern — untersucht bestimmte Formen der Konfrontation: Engagement und Provokation, die als künstlerische Ausdrucksmittel des anders Denkens verstanden werden.

Mit dabei die Aktion TammTamm – Künstler informieren Politiker, Hamburg (2005-2008).

 

 

publication: Copy.Right.Now

Die Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung und iRights.info präsentieren einen Reader zum Thema, mit Texten von Lawrence Lessig, Cory Doctorow, Till Kreutzer, Cornelia Sollfrank und anderen.

 

Das geltende Urheberrechtsregime reibt sich zunehmend an der digitalen Alltagswirklichkeit. Während es ursprünglich als ein auf den „genialen” Schöpfer zugeschnittenes Schutzrecht gegen Missbrauch konzipiert war, verstoßen wir, ob gewollt oder unbeabsichtigt, täglich gegen bestehendes Recht. Verlustfreies Kopieren gilt den einen als Zugewinn an Freiheit, den anderen als Einschränkung von künstlerischer Verfügungsgewalt und drohender Einnahmenverlust. Ein Ende der „Copyright Wars“ erfordert ein politisches und rechtstheoretisches Neudenken.

Kritische Strategien zu Kunst und Urheberrecht

Felix Stalder, in: Kunstforum International, Bd. 201, März 2010

 

" ... Seit mehr als 10 Jahren untersucht Cornelia Sollfrank die konzeptuellen Grundlagen des Urheberrechts, in dem sie dessen Bausteine aus konsequent künstlerischer Sicht befragt. In ihrer ersten Arbeit in diesem Großprojekt, dem Netzkunstgenerator (1999), ließ sie ein Computerprogramm schreiben, dass nach Stichworten Bilder aus dem Internet sucht und diese dann zu neuen Bildern verarbeitet... Er dient ihr allerdings weniger als „Bildmaschine“ sondern als eine konzeptuelle Anlage, um anhand eines konkreten Beispiels eine einfache Frage zu stellen, die für die Konzeption des Urheberrechts zentral ist ..."

 

 

Kunst als Anti-Copyright Aktivismus

Shehalle Zürich, in der Reihe Ästhetik@Subversion

Mittwoch, 14. April 2010, 19 Uhr

Um immaterielle Güter vermarkten zu können, müssen sie über Urheber-, Marken- und Patentrecht abgesichert werden. Kein Wunder also, dass das Konzept des «geistigen Eigentums» sich als zentrale Kategorie der Knowledge Economy etabliert hat. Doch mit der Forcierung der geistigen Eigentumsrechte in den letzten 15 Jahren sind auch die Paradoxe, die dieses Konzept hervorbringt, deutlich geworden: Während der Eigentumsbegriff einerseits dazu dient, sich Legitimität zu borgen von dem quasi «natürlichen» Recht auf materielles Eigentum, gerät seine konsequente Durchsetzung zunehmend in Konflikt mit einer anderen zentralen Kategorie der Knowledge Economy: Kreativität.

Ästhetik@Subversion ist eine Veranstaltungsreihe der Vertiefung Theorie an der Zürcher Hochschule der Künste und findet jeweils an verschiedenen Orten in Zürich statt. Details unter: www.zhdk.ch

Expanded ORIGINAL, Hatje Cantz, 2009

The work of Cornelia Sollfrank is one of the most enlightening attempts to describe the consequences of immateriality in art. She consistently points to the absolescence of concepts such as ‘original’ and ‘copyrighted’, developing a full spectrum of perspectives…

Research Project: Creating Worlds

Creating Worlds is a multi-annual research project that investigates the relationship between art production and knowledge production in the context of the transformations and crises of contemporary capitalism. Creativity becomes an ambivalent term here, “creating worlds” meaning a modulating procedure in cognitive capitalism and societies of control, but also an emerging political dimension of creativity as political imagination and invention of new lines of flight, new struggles, new worlds.

Creating Worlds is a project of Vienna-based European Institute for Progressive Cultural Policies (eipcp), and funded by WWTF, the Vienna Science and Technology Fund. The project is a collaboration of eight artist researchers and involves research, publication and artistic projects. It will be developed in the years 2009 to 2012.

Video-Interview bei art-in-berlin

Gespräch am 29.10.2009 mit der Netzkunstaktivistin und Cyberfeministin Cornelia Sollfrank anlässlich ihrer Ausstellung "Calculemus, lasst uns rechnen!" in der Landesvertretung Niedersachsen, Berlin.

 

Der Kunstmaschine von Sollfrank steht eine Replik der Rechenmaschine sowie der Briefwechsel von Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz gegenüber. Während Leibniz´ Rechenmaschine, dem Menschen einfache Denkaufgaben abnehmen sollte, um so Raum für Kreativität zu schaffen, übernimmt bei Sollfrank die Maschine selbst den kreativen Akt, um so das Konzept Kunst weiter zu entwickeln. Im Gespräch erläutert die Künstlerin die theoretischen Grundlagen ihrer Arbeit.

Lecture: The Reflective Turn

Lecture by Cornelia Sollfrank

Facultad de Bellas Artes Universitat de Barcelona, Pau Gargallo 4

20 October 2009,  4-7pm, Sala de Actos

 

Cornelia Sollfrank frames the context of artistic research, gives an overview of different national programmes, as well as ideological constructions of art and research; she discusses paramaters of the discourse such as concepts of knowledge, the (alledegly) different epistemologies of art and sciene, speaks about notions of 'process' and the seemingly problematic relationship of theory and practice. Starting point and continuous reference for her approach to artistc research are her own experiences as artist researcher.

I am pleased to announce that our project "TammTamm - Künstler informieren Politiker" (Artists informing Politicians)” will be part of the exhibition “Agents & Provocateurs“. In 2005 the initiative brought together 121 Hamburg-based artists who struggled against the state-funded (30 mio euro) private militaria museum owned by a well-known right-wing media mogul, Peter Tamm, in Hamburg’s HafenCity. The museum has been realised despite of our protest and is called now International Maritime Museum. [more…]

German artist Cornelia Sollfrank’s career has been linked to hacking, conceptual art, cyberfeminism and net.art. Since the nineties, she examines the digital cultural techniques of copying and the machine-supported production in order to question the traditional models of authorship through methods like appropriation, repetition or plagiarism...

Lecture: Nicht-Originalität als künstlerisches Konzept

Lecture by Cornelia Sollfrank at the festival Re-*RECYCLING_SAMPLING_JAMMING 

Akademie der Künste Berlin, 28.02.2009, 11:00 Uhr

 

Anhand einer Reihe von Arbeiten der letzten Jahre erläutert die Künstlerin ihre Strategien der Aneignung und Weiterverarbeitung vorhandenen Materials. Dabei reicht das Spektrum von einer vernetzten Bilderproduktionsmaschine über den Einsaz von ready aesthetics bis zur Wiederholung politisch brisanter Werke und Performances. Im Zentrum ihres Interesses steht die Frage nach einem neuen Künstlerbild, das sich aus den Fängen der Ästhetik des 18. Jahrhunderts ebenso befreit wie von den Zwängen des Kunstmarktes im 21. Jahrhundert.

In her action TroubleShooting, the German artist Cornelia Sollfrank takes up the almost forgotten shooting actions by Niki de Saint Phalle–who is known today mainly for her Nanas–and repeats it. Sollfrank who has had an interest in firearms for many years, and who has gleaned a vast collection of images of women with guns, used the repetition of this performance as an opportunity to finally learn shooting herself ...

Museum Tinguely, Basel, CH: 5 March – 29 June, 2008

 

In general we presume that artists make art, but what happens when machines produce art? Do artists then become engineers? What does the apparent withdrawal of the artist from the creative act mean, and what consequences for the originality and the uniqueness of the work of art result from it? What is a work of art in the first place in such cases: the machine, the product, or the act of production? What role is granted the viewer in the course of production: interaction or exclusion?

Electronic Art Festival, Basel, CH

25 –28 October, 2007

 

The exhibition presents positions that throw light on this year’s festival theme, Access, from very different perspectives. Playful, sensual and ironic means of access stand alongside intellectual, conceptual and also political or action-oriented interpretations. Older works demonstrate this issue’s long, important history and younger works its unabated relevance today.
Further projects will take place outdoors on the festival site and throughout the city.
