二手料、原創片 Second-hand Material Original Works

為回應《2011年版權(修訂)條例草案》,官方聲稱惡搞是犯法事件,以致大眾對二次創作的許多誤解,《二手料、原創片2》節目放映一批利用現成符號、片段去創作的實驗短片,其創作風格不只是現今風行一時的惡搞類型的政治諷刺作品,亦包含了其他藝術取向,以至嚴肅的理念或文化討論。

《2011年版權(修訂)條例草案》推出以來,政府由一開始明言批評惡搞,至最近決策局表示修訂非針對二次創作。然而二次創作並未納入豁免範圍所觸發之疑慮及訴求,至今未得到局方妥善處理。

網民以至專業人士及學術界,陸續對惡搞、同人、改歌等創作進行討論。藝術創作有二次創作的傳統。版權原意在於鼓勵創作,條例能否保障創作權利及自由?

《二手料、原創片:香港實驗短片2》延續早前十一月於牛棚之放映及研討,加入兩位藝術家的作品,移師至伙炭,討論公眾如何看待二次創作作為藝術。

策展人: 文晶瑩

參與藝術家:

黎肖嫻 、葉旭耀 、 羅海德 、 鮑藹倫 、 唐詠詩 、 蔡世豪 、 羅文樂 、 鄭智禮 、 羅玉梅

To respond to the issue of amended Copyright Ordinace, government made it clear that “Kuso” style works are infringement of the copyright law and a lot of misunderstanding of derivative work, the program “Second-hand Material Original Works” will show nine experimental short videos which involve the use of copies of images or found footage. The style of these works varies, some of them are serious research and discussion of culture, not restricted to “Kuso” style art pieces.

On putting forward the Copyright (Amendment) Bill 2011, the Establishment has started off criticizing “Kuso” images, while lately declaring that the Amendment is not targeting on Derivative works. Doubts and appeals, provoked by the refusal of exempting derivative and the attitude of the bureau’s consultation, are left unsettled.

Internet users, professionals, and the academics each expressed their views on parody, fan art and songs. Many Artworks also involves derivative and transformative process. Copyright set out to encourage creativity. Is the Ordinance protecting such values?

“Second-hand Material Original Works 2” is a continuation of the previous screening in November, with an addition of two new video works. Holding the forum in Fotanian, we hope to join artists and the public on discussing and exchanging views on Derivative work in Art.
