Court Case Claims Australian Art Market Is 30 Percent Forgeries


On the heels of this Guardian article on why fake artworks may just be good enough, now this.

A quick note on The Guardian article. The Walter Benjamin reference is a bit superficial. For Benjamin the aura did rest in the singular object, but it was much more complicated in that the auratic experience rested and relied heavily on space and time. So in effect, I’m sure Benjamin would agree that the aura could also reside in a “copy” or a “fake.”
