I’m not sure what to make of this “Luc Tuymans found guilty of plagiarism for painting of politician”.
I can understand forgery – passing something of as one thing when it’s another.
I can understand appropriation – taking one thing and placing it in another context or adapting it to evoke a new meaning
But plagiarism with imagery? I’m stumped.
Answers on a postcard please.
Similar to Shepard Fairey and the Obama poster?
I will have to look that up Vicki 🙂 as Stephanie also mentioned it on the Flickr group site.
