Sammanfattning

This short essay discusses the assumptions and politics associated with individual authorship by highlighting selected cases from the Piracy Project — a collection of appropriated, modified and pirated books from across the world. The discussed cases deliberately and freely borrow from other authors, intervene into other authors' work or disperse authorship as a tool for free speech. By looking at the motivations and agency of such authorial interventions we hope to reveal and critique the underlying assumptions of Western cultural production based on originality and individual authorship. The Piracy Project (initiated 2010) is an international publishing and exhibition project exploring the philosophical, legal and social implications of book piracy and alternative modes of dissemination. Through research and an international call for submissions The Project has gathered a collection of about 200 modified, appropriated and copied books from all over the world. The collection, which is catalogued online, is the starting point for talks and work groups questionning common assumptions about ownership, authorship and the implications policy development has had on the current debate around intellectual property. The Piracy Project is run by Andrea Francke and Eva Weinmayr as part of AND Publishing’s research programme.
