Sampling - ein Dauerproblem für Ästhetik und Urheberrecht. Am Beispiel des musikalischen Genres des Mashups geht Frédéric Döhl der Frage nach, wann in auditiven digitalen Adaptionskulturen ästhetische Selbstständigkeit entsteht. Selbstständigkeit ist zugleich der Schlüsselbegriff für den Umgang mit Adaptionen im Urheberrecht. Dem ungeachtet findet sich das Mashup insgesamt in der Illegalität wieder. Als Antwort hierauf refokussiert die Studie das Urheberrecht auf den ästhetischen Gehalt des Selbstständigkeitsbegriffs. Dieser flexible Lösungsansatz ermöglicht es, weithin als kulturell bedeutend rezipierte Arbeiten wie das »Grey Album« (2003) von Brian Burton außerhalb der Illegalität zu positionieren - in welche sich Sampling-Praktiken wie das Mashup noch immer ohne Beachtung der kreativen Qualität und kulturellen Relevanz des Einzelfalls gedrängt sehen.

This publication is the first overview of projects by Bik Van der Pol over the last decade. Seven essays by leading authors draw attention to the breadth and significance of their methodology. The projects are thus placed within a critical framework and can serve as a source of inspiration for artists, architects, designers and theorists. The ideas that Bik Van der Poll call into question in their work can make an important contribution to ongoing discussions about collections of contemporary art in museums and their social relevance, about historical appreciation, and about public participation and engagement in art.

Ways of Curating

Hans Ulrich Obrist curated his first exhibit in his kitchen when he was twenty-three years old. Since then he has staged more than 250 shows internationally, many of them among the most influential exhibits of our age. Ways of Curating is a compendium of the insights Obrist has gained from his years of extraordinary work in the art world. It skips between centuries and continents, flitting from meetings with the artists who have inspired him (including Gerhard Richter, Louise Bourgeois, and Gilbert and George) to biographies of influential figures such as Diaghilev and Walter Hopps. It describes some of the greatest exhibitions in history, as well as some of the greatest exhibitions never realized. It traces the evolution of the collections from Athanasius Kircher's 17th-century Wunderkammer to modern museums, and points the way for projects yet to come. Hans Ulrich Obrist has rescued the word "curate" from wine stores and playlists to remind us of the power inherent in looking at art—and at the world—in a new way.

Young urbanites in Vienna who spend most of their leisure time in public neighborhood parks come forward in this study. Their daily lives and their fragmented prospects are shown. The book develops a general view on growing up in cities into an in-depth representation of youth. Music as a medium of expression and resistance forms the bass-line of the study. Anthropological fieldwork, youth work backgrounds, and bits from Chicago, London and Paris show a mosaic of coming of age under conditions of global migration and inequality.
