Mondrian ‘63–‘96 Video, transferiert auf DVD, 25 Min., Englisch mit serbokroatischen Untertiteln, 1987   Piet Mondrian (US) Recent Works Öl auf Leinwand, 1963 – 1996 Walter Benjamin (1892–1940) hielt im Juni 1986 einen Vortrag mit dem Titel „Mondrian ‘63–‘96“, zu dem Werke Piet Mondrians (1872–1944) aus dem entsprechenden Zeitraum ausgestellt wurden. An den jeweiligen Lebensdaten lässt sich unschwer erkennen, dass hier jemand in der Rolle von Walter Benjamin auftrat, und dass die Bilder nach dem Tod Piet Mondrians entstanden sein mussten. Diese Art von Aneignungskunst, die konsequent jeden Verweis auf den „wahren” Autor verweigert, re- beziehungsweise dekonstruiert die Kunst(geschichtsschreibung) des 20. Jahrhunderts mit Hilfe von Kopien. Walter Benjamin (US) Mondrian ‘63–‘96 Video, transferred to DVD, 25 min., English with Serbo-Croatian subtitles, 1987 Piet Mondrian (US) Recent Works Oil on canvas, 1963 – 1996 Walter Benjamin (1892–1940) gave a speech in June 1986 by the title of Mondrian ‘63–‘96, with accompanying exhibition of works by Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) from the respective period. The respective biographical information makes it easy to discern that here someone had been stepping into Walter Benjamin’s shoes and that the images must have come into being after Piet Mondrian’s death. This type of appropriation art, which consequently refrains from making any reference to the ‘true’ author, reconstructs/deconstructs twentieth-century art(-history writing) with the aid of copies./font>

12. Februar 2008 von Inke Arns

Seminar on Intellectual Property Rights The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, Hilversum, April 10, 2008 www.ecommons.eu A wide range of actors around the globe is currently involved in the creation of unprecedentedly rich and invaluable audiovisual cultural and knowledge resources on the internet. These range from national audiovisual archives, broadcasters, professional cultural producers and institutions to civic and p2p file sharing initiatives. International Working Conference De Balie - Centre for Culture and Politics, Amsterdam, April 11 & 12, 2008De Balie in Amsterdam and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum, in collaboration with Knowledgeland, Images for the Future, and Virtual Platform, organise a two-day international public working conference on the economies, sustainability, and opportunities for creative reuse of these public audiovisual resources and archives. While the level of activity and investment in this area is enormous, the question of the longer-term sustainability of these audiovisual resources remains wide open. Continued massive public investment is one obvious solution, with equally obvious drawbacks. The conference intends to question which alternative economic models exist, or could be developed that can sustain invaluable public resources. Paradoxically, we may have to ask: What is a sustainable business model for the digital commons? » mehr
