Visiting Curator Lecture: Alana Kushnir

18 November, 2014 | FREE EVENT

New Age IP Wars: The Battles of Art, Technology and the Law

Curator and lawyer, Alana Kushnir, brings her unique experiences in London and Melbourne to bear in this lecture about how legal issues can affect contemporary art practices influenced by the internet. Kushnir will discuss in-depth case studies of recent net art and post-internet art works that actively engage with the possibilities and limitations of intellectual property law. Including examples by artists such as Rafaël Rozendaal, Jeremy Bailey, Artie Vierkant and Eva and Franco Mattes, Kushnir demonstrates a growing interest in the use of internet technology as a means to challenge the law and encourage reforms.
