Sobre la obra

Copyright Reasons is a T-shirt which carries a printed logo stating: For copyright Reasons this image is not available. A phrase that we have all read and whose meaning we are all aware of. Yes, the shirt is a plea for free culture, free movement of culture, a phrase which challenges us on the uses we want to give to what we call culture, but it is also an indicator pointing elsewhere, towards another economy, another society, another political system and, therefore, a tool for constructing meaning. Copyright Reasons is a work that clearly forms part of our everyday life, and this fills us with satisfaction.


Rogelio López Cuenca (1959)

Rogelio López Cuenca creates provocative works using a variety of means, such as manipulating easily-recognisable mass culture icons and turning them around with heavy or subtle, poetic irony, so that they don’t seem disturbing at first glance. Critical of mechanisms of control and hegemonic politics, he introduces new narratives that call on viewers to accept their own responsibility in relation to the dominant discourses. The transformation of meanings and signifiers, the creation of associations, the use of manipulation, decontextualisation, reutilisation, experimentation, parody… To Rogelio López Cuenca these are the fundamentals of artistic work – language as public heritage.
