22 June extended until 15 August 2010. Presented by Goethe-Institut Hongkong and Edith Russ Site for Media Art in collaboration with Hong Kong Film Archive
The exhibition “Culture(s) of Copy” is about the phenomenon of the copy as a global cultural strategy. The discussion of intellectual property, which could come to mind in dealing with the Asian context, is deliberately excluded, as it has already been treated in diverse ways. The copy is understood positively as a remake, a cultural translation and conversion. The phenomenon of the copy or remake is seen as an opportunity to understand and reflect on cultural differences beyond the dichotomy of east and west.
