[Emulation or Imitation: The Case of Dürer vs. Raimondi Exhibition Review]

Smith College Museum of Art has a knack for salvaging early modern works from the usual curatorial platitudes to recast objects in entirely unexpected ways. Emulation or Imitation: The Case of Dürer vs. Raimondi plays to interests in contemporary cultural issues of copyright infringement and the unauthorized reproduction of creative material by contextualizing the two artists’ prints within the framework of such debates. The show presents several original prints by Albrecht Dürer and corresponding copies by Marcantonio Raimondi, mostly from the former’s Life of the Virgin series. Though Dürer and Raimondi act as the major players of the show, approximately twenty-five prints from a variety of Renaissance artists are arranged to develop distinct categories of visual citation, including emulation, imitation, and outright copying.

Ironically, the exhibition’s endeavor to demonstrate Dürer’s relevance depends upon decidedly unfashionable art historical methodologies--I’m talking about that body of Morellian arts we call connoisseurship--and it works. Dürer presented a legal case against Raimondi not because the Italian artist was copying his prints, but rather, because he disseminated works bearing Dürer’s distinctive AD signature. Several of Raimondi’s copies are therefore almost identical to their Dürer models, and were intended to pass as such. Connoisseurship is crucial to the premise of the show, allowing the curators to distinguish “original” from “copy”, and to arrange the objects as such for public viewing. Implicitly, Emulation or Imitation advocates the reassessment of a methodology too often dismissed by contemporary academe, while also prompting questions about the problematic dichotomy between “real” and “fake”.

Réussir une communauté professionnelle, cela ne s’improvise pas | réseaux sociaux scientifiques | scoop.it
Bâtir une ou des communauté(s) au sein d’un réseau social grand public ou d’entreprise (aussi appelé réseau social “privé”) est certainement l’action la plus décisive et exaltante qui soit - car raison d’être du réseau lui-même - et la plus difficile.
J’ai coutume de dire que les réseaux sociaux sont le reflet de la « vraie vie », au sens où ils permettent d’échanger plus facilement et naturellement, comme nous le faisons quotidiennement dans la rue ou autour de la machine à café.

A charge du gestionnaire de communauté (le « community manager ») et l’équipe de pilotage de promouvoir ce nouvel outil et de s’assurer avant le lancement que quelques pré-requis soient bien respectés :


une durée suffisante de lancement (quelques mois).

  • des populations cibles précises, pouvant être étendues durant la période de lancement.
  • des objectifs et bénéfices concrets pour chaque communauté (le « sujet totem »).
  • un soutien affiché et réel (par des actions visibles et tenues dans le temps) des sponsors du projet.
  • une « équipe cœur » connue de tous (community manager, administrateur SI…).
  • des relais (aussi appelés « ambassadeurs ») motivés à soutenir et promouvoir le projet auprès de leurs pairs.
