Antoine Defoort, co-founder of L’Amicale de Production – a cooperative creative platform and artistic and methodological lab that conceives unique relationships to art and work – presents Un faible degré d’originalité (A low degree of originality). Over 90 minutes he ‘retraces the amazing history of copyright from the 15th century to the present day’. Un faible degré d’originalité is a talk, and also a show. It’s a talk: ‘Denis Diderot will come in person to explain the context of the Age of Enlightenment. We’ll hear about the incredible saga of Maurice Ravel’s inheritance and we’ll talk about the concept of “resource rivalry” by distributing Pépito ®.’ It’s a show: ‘There will be jokes and sleights of hand to make the subject digestible, theatrical stratagems whose simplicity/effectiveness ratio has been carefully tested. We’ll make a copyrights model with cardboard boxes, there will be a little cartoon adapted for A3 sheets and we’ll sing a song to highlight what’s really terrible about the story of Les Parapluies de Cherbourg.’
