About

No Copyright Infringement Intended is a group exhibition exploring the relationship between copyright and culture in the digital age, investigating how the concept of ownership and authorship is evolving and coming into conflict with outdated copyright and intellectual property laws.

For the many people now mass sharing, copying and remixing seems like a natural form of self expression. Rather than embracing this change and using it to their advantage, rights holders often resort to reinforcing outdated laws – penalising those who copy – and placing barriers on technology’s ability to share information and content freely.

Featuring eight national and international artists working across a range of creative practices, the exhibition highlights the ongoing tension between production and copyright, considers the new artistic possibilities created through this tension and suggests new ways forward for artists, rights holders and the wider creative community.

Curated by Antonio Roberts, a new media artist and curator based in Birmingham. Kindly supported by Arts Council England
