Abstract:

Description: Fake, organized by William Olander. "To utter the word 'fake;' to point a finger and say 'fraud;' to declare what was believed to be original 'counterfeit, ' can promote an extraordinary rupture in the social fabric. To create a fake; to perpetrate a fraud; to pass a counterfeit is literally illegal, but in a broader, metaphoric sense, each constitutes a subversive act which, if not prosecutable, is not easily tolerated. Yet, in a global economy increasingly dominated by high technology capable of reproducing copies more "real" than the real thing, the fake is revealed only with great difficulty. Indeed, for a fake to operate as a fake, it must pass as an original, circulating freely in our system of late capitalism, from the art forgery to the knock-off high fashion, from the pirated record album to the copyright infringement."--Catalogue.
