Oliver Laric’s Versions is an audiovisual essay on authorship and piracy in various fields of cultural production. Placed in a historical perspective, the video brings up numerous examples of use and reuse in literature, photography, and film. Laric investigates the peculiarities of original and copy: both have a different status and meaning, the copy is not necessarily inferior to the original. Consequently, Laric has made various derivative versions of his own film.
