Interview with Law Professor Eduardo M. Peñalver, on Art, Law and Property

This interview took place over email exchanges between December 20, 2005 and January 3, 2006. In this interview, Law Professor Eduardo M. Peñalver talks in part about property law, the legal differences between real and intellectual property, and the relationship of these discourses to art and cultural production.

In trying to ascertain the relationship between law and cultural production, I decided to approach scholars and practitioners who had practical, theoretical, and philosophical experience with the impact of law on art. Although there are many art theorists, art historians, and art practitioners who have a wealth of experience in their respective fields, I have chosen to approach this investigation from the viewpoint of a field traditionally excluded from studies of visual culture, art, and art history. I can only hope that this experiment proves me right. — Sergio Muñoz-Sarmiento

Hernando de Soto, The Mystery of Capital, (2000)

In The Trace Of The Law: The Deep River Project

In a sense, and like the judiciary, a deconstructive approach has the power to give body to a shadow, and thus raises the question of whether the two can be told apart.
