Artistic Appropriation Versus Cultural Appropriation

97 -

Starting with the first definition of the act of appropriation, “to take something that does not belong to us,” the author compares the approach of appropriation artists (David Krippendorff, Sherrie Levine, Richard Prince, and others) with that of visual artists accused of cultural appropriation (Sam Durant, Dominic Gagnon, Dana Schutz, and others). The aim is to show that although the act seems similar on both sides, the motivations and consequences are diametrically opposed. One side tries to reveal relations of power, while the other tries to deny them.
[Translated from the French by Oana Avasilichioaei]
