The Art of Repetition from Dürer to YouTube

The phenomenon of copying is as old as art itself. Yet today, in the age of ‘copy & paste’, questions about the significance of originality are topical – sometimes even explosive – in a way rarely seen before.
This publication is intended as a compendium, whose role is to comprehensively examine, for the first time, the variety of forms, functions and motivations inherent in copying. It does this using selected examples from an image-based and art-historical perspective. The selection features works ranging from those produced in the late Middle Ages, through the Modernist period to contemporary art and the world of the Internet.
