Our world is multiple. It is a hyper-industrialized world, which can indiscriminately copy and reproduce any object, text or image. A situation that in the artistic circuit promotes certain duplicity: we can observe how to differentiate both the unique and singular to the multiple, the original name of your copy. For years we have differentiated the singular from the multiple, holding the way of the unique, with no copies violating its magnificence and value, in contrast to a world that runs in the opposite direction. Our production today can repeat, alter or modify almost anything (imagine the possibilities of digitizing). This paper questions the canon of singularity and uniqueness as a productive approach and artistic value of the work, to raise a scenario more in line with our present.

Key words: Unique, multiple, graphic art, printmaking, original, copy.
