At PICA we recognise that we are situated within the unceded lands of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar Nation. We pay our respects and offer our gratitude to Elders past and present, and to those emerging leaders in the community. We acknowledge all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the importance of their care and continued connection to culture, community and Country.

Always was, always will be.

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.
