The notion of “plagiarism by anticipation” – a phenomenon that in its own way reverses the chronology of history – has been used in literature for many years. Can this paradox be expanded, also in relation to the history of art, to include the possibility of the idea of a “copy by anticipation”? Prof. Tomasz Swoboda will try to answer this question in his lecture.
