Guy Rub on Conceptual Art

Season 1, Ep. 562

In this episode, Guy A. Rub, Professor of Law at the Ohio State University Moritz College of Law, discusses his article "Owning Nothingness: Between the Legal and the Social Norms of the Art World," which will be published in the Brigham Young University Law Review. Rub begins by explaining what conceptual art is and why it is a problem for copyright law. He describes how the art market transacts in conceptual art and why those transactions are in tension with copyright law. And he reflects on how conceptual art can inform our understanding of authorship, creativity, and ownership. Rub is on Twitter at @Guy_A_Rub.
