Scholar Lecture: Martha Buskirk, “The Convenient Fiction of Authors”

Clark Fellow Martha Buskirk presents “The Convenient Fiction of Authorship (On the Interwined Fortunes of Art and Copyright).”

Arguing that it is impossible to understand modern and contemporary art without taking into account articulations of intangible value that are the basis of intellectual property, and conversely, that sometimes divergent art-world conventions can illuminate copyright dynamics, Martha Buskirk explores issues of authorship, ownership, and public interest accentuated by their intersection.
