On Intellectual Property

New York based curator Laurel Ptak and I have initiated a long-term conversation and collaborative research project on the subject of intellectual property, open culture, and art practice. We are presently co-organising a series of events and co-editing a book around the subject. The following text is an imperfect facsimile and uncopyrightable trace of our ongoing dialogue around authorship, ownership, economy, difference, ethics, freedom, production, consumption, use, public, private, and the gift, as it has unfolded since the fall of 2009.
