Abstract (English)

Challenging modernist notions of originality, authority, authenticity and simulation in the visual arts, the main essay revolves around issues of technology, production and reproduction, forgery, photography, television, video, politics, AIDS and fraud. It concludes on a conscious optimistic note regarding the role of art as experimental practice in the modern world. Followed by Tillman's humourous essay "Mme Realism's Imitation of Life". 22 bibl. ref.
