The Piracy Project is not about stealing or forgery. It is about creating a platform to innovatively
explore the spectrum of copying / re-editing / translating / paraphrasing / imitating / re-organising
/ manipulating of already existing works. Here creativity and originality sit not in the borrowed
material itself, but in the way it is handled.
The Piracy Project is developed by Andrea Francke and Eva Weinmayr under the AND Publishing program for 2011.
