This book offers great insight to the art of appropriation. Within it's pages, almost every aspect and definition of the word appropriation (art related, and otherwise) are covered. There is a great war of opinions in the world of appropriation, and it is intriguing and entertaining to observe the stance that some take. What's even more intriguing, was the power some of the artist and critics had to change MY mind about what I believed to be appropriate use of appropriation.
Though this book will open your mind to new ideas and curious conclusions, if you're not extremely well versed in the jargon of the art world, you might want to have a dictionary handy. Due to my lack of artistic vocabulary, I found myself struggling to connect with many of the testimonies on appropriation that are found in this book.
