Buffalo Zine is a satirical fashion magazine with a cult following. For their ninth issue, they delve into the murky world of imitation, from copies to clones, fakes to frauds, parodists to plagiarists. As Pablo Picasso once said: good artists copy, great artists steal. Except he didn’t actually come up with that line. He copied it from T.S. Eliot.

 

At a time when referencing, borrowing and adapting are everywhere — but our obsession with authenticity and uniqueness has never been greater — what does it mean to be original today?

 

In this issue:

 

  • Photographers copy a fashion story by Lee Jenkins, published in Vogue Italia in 1999
  • Lee Jenkins reacts to photographers copying his story
  • An extensive interview with Lee “Scratch” Perry, the grandfather of punk, hip-hop, electronic music, disco and more
  • A series of conversations exploring the theme of the issue: Paul Simonon and Damon Albarn; Maurizio Cattelan and Babak Radboy; Carsten Höller and his twin brother Hans Ulrich Obrist
