Cease & Desist Art: yes, this is illegal!
[Text nur in englischer Sprache verfügbar] Cease & Desist Art: yes, this is illegal!

curated by Simona Lodi

For some years now, it has become common among digital artists to focus on illegal art practices. Countless Cease & Desist letters have been sent out by companies to pirates, plagiarists, hackers and disturbers, which are shown off as trophies in exhibitions, web communities and mailing lists. Action artists promote controversial forms of art, using guerilla tactics to protest against the fairness of copyright and intellectual property laws.

Receiving a Cease & Desist letter has become the latest badge in championing the freedom to create in the Corporation Age. Any artist interested in taking part in the movement chooses a good lawyer rather than a good gallery owner. What is happening to the future of art? What rights and freedoms are these artists championing? Does all this have something to do with the end of techno-utopias?

In what way has business co-opted the values of hackers, exploiting open source initiatives, web freedom and on-line equality and sparking the use of these practices?
