Huh?

Much emphasis has been placed on the concept of originality in art. But as Krauss points out in this article, some art forms such as photography and sculpture are not concerned with the concept of authenticity. The original work (negative or plaster) is not the final product and was never intended to be. We place more value on reproductions created closer to the “original” mold or negative and made by the artist’s own hand, but does it really matter?
