COPYSTAND

I guess this might be a little old – rehashing the question of ‘what is art’ perhaps. But reminds me a little of a Konstfack project done last year where two students produced a fake catalogue filled with some genuine but mostly fake projects. Copystand was an event set up at the Freize Art Fair where people created counterfeit versions of the art on display at the Fair. The results were sold at a fraction of the price.
