Agency Assembly (Before and After the Split Second Recorded)

REDCAT Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater

631 West 2nd St, Los Angeles, 90012

6:00pm

Brussels-based artist Kobe Matthys, through his initiative Agency, investigates the modern concept of intellectual property, and its reliance on the assumption of a division between the ontological categories of ‘nature’ and ‘culture’. Knowing that such
 a split is difficult to make when applied to many art practices, Matthys Agency is creating 
a growing list of ‘things’ that resists the split between these two classifications. These ‘things’ are mainly derived from controversies and jurisprudence around intellectual property. For
 the exhibition, Agency gathers a selection of ‘things’ from its list, based on the speculative question “How can temporalities become included within art practices?” This question addresses ways that the requirement of “fixation” in copyright law may be inconsistent with the ecosystem of art, since the scope of interpretations can encompass an infinite set of potential variations. The exhibition delves into approximately thirty controversies around the temporariness of singular cases within cinema, fine arts, gaming, gardening, make-up, music, performance, reality television, speech, sports and theater, among others. Some of the controversies will be explored further during a series
 of five events or “assemblies” at REDCAT.

Agency Assembly: baseball games

REDCAT Roy and Edna Disney/CalArts Theater

631 West 2nd St, Los Angeles, 90012

6:00pm

Thing 000856 (baseball games) concerns a controversy around the television broadcast of baseball games in the United States. Baseball teams filed an action seeking a declaration that the telecasts of the games are copyrighted “works made for hire” in which the players have no rights. The players claim that the clubs’ ownership of the telecast copyright does not confer on them any rights to the underlying performances, and that the players have publicity rights to their likenesses and performances embodied in the games’ telecasts. On May 23, 1985, during the court case Baltimore Orioles and others v. Major League Baseball Players Association at the the United States District Court of Illinois in Chicago, Judge Charles Kocoras had to decide if the copyrights of game telecasts also incorporate the performances of the players.
