Det mångfaldigade originalet: studier i originalgrafikbegreppets uppkomst, teori och användning
Stockholm University.
1992 (Swedish)Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

The concept of the ‘original print’ is studied in many aspects, how it developed, how it has been received and its content, in order to understand the modern conception and the recent discussion of the concept. Texts of various kinds are analyzed in order see the expectations posed on the original print.

The study is divided into three sections. The first deals with the historic aspect of the idea up to the 1890’s, at which time all the components of the present-day definition for an original print were to hand. An essential part is here to demonstrate how the idea of the original print also matches the idea of the authentic work of art as an imprint of the artist’s personality. The second part of the book deals with theoretical issues. It begins with a review of what is called the circulatory systems in which a print is involved and is followed by an examination of the discussions to be found in philosophical journals relating to different concepts of originality. It ends with three models for transferring authenticity from the artist to the work art and a theory of what here is called transgraphic arts. The third section is devoted to the discussions of the concept of the original print after World War II with an emphasis of the 1970’s. Different rules and definitions are analyzed in the view of the models for transferring authenticity, as are also certain attempts to regulate the multiple art work by law. Examples is given from USA, France and Sweden.

If there is a lowest common factor for defining the original print it is that the print is a transgraphic art form where authenticity and originality are transferred from one stage of the production process to another. It is printed by a machine which has the capacity to produce multiple identical copies. The print must be created with the explicit purpose of being a work of graphic art, using the expressive potential object of the chosen medium. It is precisely this intention and claim to be an innovative creation that distiguishes an original print from a reproduction.
