Martha Buskirk on Art & Copyright

Season 1, Ep. 685

In this episode, Martha Buskirk, Professor of Art History and Criticism at Montserrat College of Art, discusses her new book "Is It Ours?: Art, Copyright, and Public Interest," which will be published by the University of California Press. Buskirk begins by reflecting on why art and copyright should care about each other. She describes particular examples of tension between the two, including the work of artists like Jeff Koons, Richard Prince, and Cady Noland, among others. And she explains how reflecting on that tension can help us better understand both art and copyright, and what we want them to achieve. Buskirk is on Twitter at @martha_buskirk.
