David Cohen, publisher and editor of artcritical.com, probes the philosophical and art historical implications of several recent cases that have gripped art world attention. They include the dispute between Swiss installation artist Christophe Buchel and MASS MoCA, the lawsuit brought against Richard Prince by photographer Patrick Cariou, John Baldessari's altercations with the Giacometti Foundation, and the case of the Warhol Foundation vs. Simon-Whelan. Karen Gover, professor of philosophy at Bennington College, and artist and artnet magazine Editor Walter Robinson respond. Presented by the BFA Visual & Critical Studies Department.
