Introduction by Premsela's Programme Manager Tim Vermeulen

Copy/Culture Beijing was organised on September 27th during the Beijing Design Week, focusing mainly on cultural aspects of copying. During Copy/Culture Berlin, held during the DMY International Design Festival on the 4th of June, we discussed attitudes to copying and industry's responses to it. Copy/Culture Istanbul will take place in the spring of 2012. All locations are connected through their hybrid geographical position and by their diverse design fields, dealing with both influences from East and West.

Premsela conducts research on attitudes to copying in design and industry's search for new ways of dealing with it. Learn more about Copy/Culture and stay up to date at premsela.org and on iTunes, Facebook, Vimeo and Twitter.

Copy/Culture Symposium

Het Nieuwe Instituut PRO

Design culture is obsessed with authenticity. Copying is often deemed reprehensible, and borrowing another’s idea or incorporating elements of his or her work into one’s own is viewed as a sign of creative impoverishment. But is this right? What’s wrong with interpreting someone else’s creation? Musicians have been quoting each other’s work for centuries – why shouldn’t the same thing happen in other creative disciplines?

Design culture is obsessed with authenticity. Copying is often deemed reprehensible, and borrowing another’s idea or incorporating elements of his or her work into one’s own is viewed as a sign of creative impoverishment. But is this right? What’s wrong with interpreting someone else’s creation? Musicians have been quoting each other’s work for centuries – why shouldn’t the same thing happen in other creative disciplines? Where does quotation end and copying begin?

This channel features lectures of the symposia during DMY Berlin 2011 and Beijing Design Week 2012. Next stop: Istanbul. The third symposium will take place on 28 April as a coproduction of Premsela, SALT and One Day Everything Will Be Free.
