Libro de los Plagios

Carboncillos basados en las imágenes del Libro de los Plagios

A series of charcoal drawings, based on the images from the "Libro de los Plagios" (The Book of Plagiarism). This book was published in 1991 by the Basque sculptor Oteiza, as an indictment of what he perceived to be a flagrant plagiarism of his work. The author illustrated his texts with black and white photography of abstract modernist sculptures, juxtaposing the work of other artists with his own.

A booklet mimicking the style of the original has been produced alongside the drawings, in which Oteiza's poetic and polemical treatise on different ways to lean on other people's work has been manipulated and updated with our own reflections on the topic.
