The New Value and Meaning of Replica: Preserving Cultural Heritage
In a world where material culture is fragile and at risk, copying can be a tool for cultural preservation. In this talk, Director of the V&A Martin Roth discusses a new display which takes the Museum’s 19th-century cast courts as a departure point for exploring the new meaning, value and application of replicas. ‘A World of Fragile Parts’, developed in collaboration with the Venice Biennale, will function as a temporary laboratory for studying the copy, the new technologies that can sustain the practice, and the social, political and legal implications of creating replicas.
