interesting read: best practices on fair use in visual arts

11 Feb

Using, recreating, remixing work from artists in new artistic circumstance has been of all ages. When is it caa-fair-use-coverlabeled as fair use, when is it plagiarism? A question that is very hot at the moment due to the verdict on plagiarism by Luc Tuymans. The College Art Association (CAA) very recently published a booklet on the matter. It is a code of conduct on fair use. Although based on the American legislation, very useful elsewhere. Could be help in reflection and debate on the use of other art works in new artistic contexts. The code and an infographic about possible use of the code is available on CAA’s website.
