Dead Darlings

Dead Darlings is an anonymous and subversive auction series that started in Amsterdam. Below you'll find some scans of the catalog that accompanied the 'Inadvertent Copy' edition.

From their website: "At some point, most artists have made a work that REALLY looks like a well-known artist’s specific work, the work of a colleague or resembles the general oeuvre of another. The result is an unintentional facsimile, an innocent rip-off if you will…"

Masterminds behind this lovely concept are Lina Ozerkina and Tania Theodorou (together with Carolin Reheirt and Adam Etmansk). Read all about previous and upcoming editions here.
