350MC – Different Types of Appropriation

by alexmasonphotography

Although appropriation can happen in many areas of peoples working and creative lives, they differ somewhat and will vary depending on culture.

In fine art for example we expect appropriation, it is how artists are taught to draw, by copying things and imitation but appropriation will be different if for example we look at newspaper articles. Newspaper articles are constantly re-posted or rewritten but under the authors own byline which allows the author to give their own opinion on the article and reflect on what somebody else has written. Music is expected to be covered now with Radio 1 Live Lounge Sessions but also the reproduction of music on YouTube.
