Abstract


  • Law has an ambivalent relationship with artistic and cultural

    material, for the artistic is malleable and unstable. Law assumes

    and prefers the stable and reliable, and the closed, and distrusts

    the vagaries that typify the artistic. Law likes to keep its distance

    from the artistic, though it is happy to be its judge, and to have its

    own views on art. It then firmly intrudes into the artistic, especially

    where rogue aspects of art and culture operate. While law is

    unable to trust its judgment about the artistic and cultural, it will

    still make art experts and institution subject to the overriding truth

    of the law.
