Lecture by Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento: On the Necessity of Creative Autonomy

  • Diese Veranstaltung hat bereits stattgefunden.

Art is burdened with the belief that it must critique and refer to other spaces, the same spaces that allow it to exist and thrive. In fact, art has wanted nothing other than bourgeois legitimacy, regulation and acceptance into the status quo. What then of an alternate space—a space of imagination, creativity, and existence? What happened to the creative impulse for the sake of creating an autonomous language and space? Why don’t we just kill art?

Sergio Muñoz Sarmiento is an arts lawyer and scholar interested in the relationship between art and law, with a focus on tangible and intangible property, copyright, publicity rights and appropriation, complex contracts and negotiations, moral rights, freedom of expression, and artists’ legacies. He has published art and law essays in the Cornell Journal of Law and Public Policy, Texas A&M Law Review, Yale Journal of Law and the Humanities, Perspecta: The Yale Journal of Architecture, Law Text Culture, Unbound: Harvard Journal of the Legal Left, and The New York Times. In 2010, Sarmiento founded the Art & Law Program, a New York-based colloquium that focuses on the study of law as a linguistic system, institutional force, and power structure, with a particular focus on how the discourses and practices of law and visual culture impact each other, self-governance, history, and culture. Sarmiento received his BA in Art from the University of Texas-El Paso, an MFA in Art from the California Institute of the Arts, and a J.D. from Cornell Law School.
