Are you an artist, a revolutionary, an owner? Questions of ownership permeate our culture – sample a sound, claim the East Van sign, remix a logo… Whether you’re an artist playing with images or sound, a coder or an activist, at some point you’ve probably asked yourself whether what you are doing is legal.
The Artists’ Legal Outreach (ALO) in association with New Forms Festival 2011 and W2 Community Media Arts presents Art, Revolution and Ownership, a multidisciplinary exploration of the ideas that inform art and the law. The performances, exhibitions and conversations explore the idea of the public domain, copyright and cultural consumption.

Experience several different and contemporary works displayed through this new internationally acclaimed medium.
