Art, authenticity and appropriation

Frontiers of Philosophy in China 1 (3):455-476 (2006)
Abstract
It is often suggested that artists from one culture (outsiders) cannot successfully employ styles, stories, motifs and other artistic content developed in the context of another culture. I call this suggestion the aesthetic handicap thesis and argue against it. Cultural appropriation can result in works of high aesthetic value
