It is no accident that the title quotes the film Copie Conforme by Abbas Kiarostami, in which an art expert plays the leading female role. Copying, imitation and referencing are not just the basis of artistic production but also of all cultural systems. Against the backgrouned of timeless and current discourses on copyright and the freedom of art, this exhibition project seeks to offer an insight into contemporary artistic positions that link methods of creative appropriation or referentiality with socio-political statements or explicitly to use them as instruments.

Curated by: Amina Handke
