This working paper reports on the travelling exhibition “Derivatives”. This exhibition investigates the issue of originality in the context of (self) plagiarism and replication. The different views in the Arts and the scientific discourse form the point of departure for discovering how ideas that are identical can still be completely different and new, but also that ‘original’ works of art can be repetitive reproduction.
