16 Minerva Works, B5 5RS Birmingham, United Kingdom
As part of No Copyright Infringement Intended Antonio Roberts will be leading a part presentation, part practical workshop that will consider the history of the modern meme and how it sits contrary to outdated copyright laws which prevent using existing copyrighted imagery in new creative works.

Inspired by Christopher Meerdo's 2016 project ♡°☆(ಠೆಒಠಿ)☆°♡ (for Luc Tuymans) participants are invited to create memes using Katrijn Van Giels photograph of Jean-Marie Dedecker as source material. The photograph itself was the subject of a plagiarism case against Antwerp-born painter Luc Tuymans, who used it as source material for his painting A Belgian Politician.

The results will be added to katrijnvangiel.tumblr.com/ with a credit to you, and exhibited at No Copyright Infringement Intended which runs 1st — 23rd September at Vivid Projects, Birmingham.

This workshop is free. Places can be reserved here: eventbrite.co.uk/e/memes-for-luc-tuymans-tickets-36686531403

Participants will need to bring a computer with image editing software installed. We can advise on free alternatives should none be installed.
