"Imagine that the great Spanish mastersUPicasso, Mir*, Dali, and TapiesUused photography to play with and re-form their own works. What would these photographs look like? A convincing fictional answer is provided by Joan Fontcuberta, who after parodying various scientific disciplines (botany, zoology, astronomy) has taken to reinventing the history of art itselfUby posing as the curator of such an exhibit, which was shown in the United States and Europe. Beyond the irony and humor of such a project, Fontcuberta explores such hot-button issues as the symbiotic relationship between art and photography, concepts of authenticity and authorship in an age of mechanical reproduction, and ever-changing notions about tradition and avant-gardism in the art world."
