Abstract

Today's art, which is dominated by postmodernism, evolves into a completely different sense of art that reverses the system
over its own weapon and changes all the known values of art. Postmodern art, which focuses on questions about what is the
thing that is art, canalises itself into citations and compilations which turn into imitation, appropriation, pastiche or
plagiarism. While postmodernism turns into a kind of citation and compilation aesthetics; imitation, which is at the centre of
the questions related to what is the thing that is art, becomes the strategy of postmodernism. The article titled ‘The Lord of
the Postmodernity: Plagiarism’ is about the transformation of an art object into an art material or the re-presentation of it in
today's sense of art which extends from imitation, appropriation and pastiche to plagiarism.
Keywords: Postmodernism, plagiarism, power, imitation, appropriation, art, pastiche.
