How can the past be made fertile not as a relic, but as a lived experience for the present and future? From now until 2019, a series of publications will address this fundamental question of the 100 Years of Now project (2015–18) in 12 paradigmatic in-depth volumes.
Concerts, talks, films, installations, performances, publicationA titanic struggle is currently raging over copyright. Publishers, labels and production companies battle the representatives of the digital economy over exploitation and remuneration. In this conflict, where are the interests of the artists? What about those of consumers with their desire to use high quality cultural goods? 100 Years of Copyright investigates the evolution of copyright since the birth of the cultural industry, concepts of intellectual property and artistic freedom. Initially intended as a research project, it will culminate in the fall of 2018 with concerts, talks, films, installations and performances.
