That wasn't going to happen either, mostly because the works were presented as originals on: Artsy The art exhibitions and galleries Fatima's website
And she only claimed she "used references" when she got caught and pretended to defense herself with the press. And now is using stupid claims such as "Reference" "appropriationism" "reinterpretation" "resignification".
Just be part of a feminist and peronist agenda in this country, constantly promote the goverment and be active WHEN your favorite party is winning and gets elected to be president to constantly grab the issues of the country by its balls and try to insert them in big chunks of text describing some low skill rip-off drawing to "tell a message" independently of your skills who are only justified because you have a Title
Oof, I've heard about her a couple days ago. Really made my blood boil. The museum's at fault too. I hope one day IP laws become more possible to exercise by general public, and people like this pos would be held accountable to full extent of the crime.
I'm from Argentina, so imagine my reaction when my brother-in-law sent me the first video addressing the issue, I had heartburns for three days straight, and when her defense was made on "La Nación+" and "Página 12" gosh, I may still have my high-school information and I may be a self-taught artist but.... gosh she did not only hide under the curator and the art historian that defended her, but those two jokes of "art connoisseurs" used examples such as Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Andy Warhol's cans and fricking Roy Lichtenstein but they limited the information, avoiding all the legal troubles they had, the critiques, art rights they bought or the agreements with the plagiarised artists they had outside courts, or how Mona Lisa is of free domain since Da Vinci's copyright expired a long time ago because he is dead. They are ignorants.
Worst was to see the journalist from Pagina 12, claiming that it's the same as using memes, everyone is plagiarising then, God if she knew there is a mega archive crediting the origin of those memes on fricking Know your Meme
Excuse yourself but I'm Argentinian, the man that put the plagiarism under the light is argentinian and us argentinian working together were the ones that found around 36 plagiarised works, contacted the original artists, I myself informed the case to Batusawa and both translated and let know the issue to the non-spanish speakers.
Try to not put everyone under the same bag, otherwise you're no different from this woman who calls everyone macho or sexist after being caught or the antis that say that all artists, all feminists or all peronists are thiefs.
How am I defending the art theft when I'm the one exposing it here in DeviantART?
Dude, chill out because you're clearly making some wild assumptions, I made a fricking document both showing the plagiarised work and the original, crediting the original artists and linking to their social media, which in fact so far are 36 works and I also translated the damn issue properly because it's better than attempting to use Google Translate and have some half translated half nonsense on Journal articles.
When I'm defending art thiefs? Quote it, because when I say try not to put everyone under the same bag it's because I've already dealt with people saying "all argentinians are like this" "argentinians are all thiefs" "fucking argenitinians always lying and stealing" or same when it comes to feminist people, it's important to don't put everyone under the same bag because not all thiefs are fricking adults, some are just kids who don't know about art etiquette so it's important to know who the plagiarist is instead of just throwing knifes at everything that moves, children can learn, now adults especially the ones that take advantage of their privileges, it's something that would only be fixed once you show them there is something bigger and way more powerful than them, few are the chances when someone just didn't knew or mistook an art branch and went beyond the limits of referencing or doing appropiationism.
I think you're trying to argue for no reason, because I clearly did not say whatever you're gaslighting me into. This is weird, I'm out. Good job exposing the art thief, but you're oddly inclined to be hostile towards a person who agreed with you, so have a nice day.
I wonder how do you manage to assume someone is being aggresive to you when you clearly don't know the person and the connotation of words on text are something that is totally up to you, I apologize if my attempts of speaking on a language that is not mine ends up bringing you the wrong idea, but even if my english is quite rusty, I'm in no way attempting to pick a fight, as you say
Again, I said you cannot put everyone under the same bag, you never know when the art thief is a kid and is just confused, doesn't know about art, or anyone who is new to the field and needs some guidance. Mistakes can be made and not always art thiefs do it with the intention to scam lots of people.
And when I say about the argentinians thing, is to provide an example and just to let it stated before anyone comes again and goes calling all of us the same, just like when people bombarded on AgavoArt's Tweet, call it precaution and being tired of this shit, because yeah everyone goes art thiefs are shit but then no one does anything and the issue will die in the nothingness, that's why I'm translating the issue, because we are powerless and can't bring this woman to justice
Because she doesn't know anything about composition, anatomy, perspective, angle, shots, arrange, color theory, strokes, anything. Ex-Classmates of her, claimed that she abandoned classes and refused to learn by calling the teachers (independently of being male or female) sexist and for trying to control her freedom of artistic expression. Ex-classmates of her also warned each other because she had the bad habit of copying and stealing homeworks or projects. So yeah, this is something that is out of control.
Because she is a feminist militant in favour of the current goverment, constantly promoting it and for a Museum that is in fact in favour too of the current goverment, no wonder Bauer, the Minister of Culture, has supported this despite of the constant complaints of the public, after all he got his position thanks to the actual president. It's all about a political agenda sadly, and by how constantly before the plagiarism was discovered, the plagiarist claimed that
"The combination of otakus and peronism is to innovate the story so younger audiences can pick an interest" basically trying to lure kids into peronism because in Argentina you can vote at the age of 16, basically, they are trying to adoctrinate children who are easier to influence than adults. And this has happened before, not the plagiarism but trying to use anime to promote political parties, a representative of the libertarian party went to an anime convention with a cosplay of an Original Character called "The God Emperor AntiCapitalist" so yeah we know Argentina is a joke, we even joke about it too
the joys of thieves getting their paws caught in the cookie jar and then claiming to be a victim and want sympathy. hopefully these companies and people will go after her and file lawsuits and ruin her life. be an artist, just don't plagiarize or steal it.
yeah that's the problem with these privileged artists, they think they are untouchable. there's always that bored and/or courageous lawyer... even that fresh meat looking to make a name for themselves. or, in this day and time, it's all cool, no one cares and they give kudos to them standing up for being such a great artist, at least in the artist's mind. I wasn't impressed with their stuff. these days duck tape and a banana as well as a white canvas is worth a lot, people have lost taste in what real art is apparently...
case in point. glad there's something even more lethal. word of mouth. nothing can ruin someone's existence faster... or bring out the worst in thieves thinking they can get away with being a criminal as well. society, how far it has fallen...
