The focus is on the case of the art collector Brigitte Löw-Radeschnig, who collected a whole series works by the Austrian artist Arnulf Rainer, created between 2010 and 2014 in Tenerife, and has been fighting for recognition of her collection ever since. The photo book documents the creation of the works with statements from contributors, muses and models.
“If the pictures that the artist created are in his studio, the artist can not only destroy them; he can also deny having created them— as he harms no one through this. But as soon as these pictures are circulated—when they are exchanged, sold, exhibited, reproduced, etc.—this puts an immediate end to the untruthful denial of the authorship: an artist who created a work may not untruthfully say of this work that he did not create it. And this is the very focus of the matter that provided the impetus for this book.” (Prof. Dr. Alfred J. Noll)
