Certificate of Genuineness CoG
A Certificate of Genuineness vouches for the genuineness of a work of art and certifies that the work of art has been presented for certification by appropriate evidence.
Current art productions, for example from the fields of media, net, conceptual art or RAM-art, are often characterized by the following criteria:
nicht notwendige Bedingungen
Even if these are not necessary conditions, it is clear that the materials shown in exhibitions often represent only incomplete derivations of the works or the productions and are insufficient for an assessment. The CoG thus represents a preventive safeguard for a work.
Artworks with a GeheimRat-CoG are classified according to the art-for-better-life categories.
