Why have so many artists turned to twentieth-century models of appropriation art to engage with networked image culture? How do these approaches help us to understand photography today, and what are their potential blind spots? Are there alternative approaches available to artists? What does ‘appropriation’ mean to a culture defined by the continual and rapid re-use of images?
