2ManyDJs enrage Rock-Puritans with “Nirvana vs Destiny’s Child”; Brian Burton reaps fame for his “Grey Album”; the team around Kay Voges literally sends his actress into the fridge and dares the “border walk” with Nietzsche, Deleuze and AFD election propaganda. The digital networking, availability and changeability of material favour artistic practices based on referential appropriation and creative processing.
Mash-ups mix the existing and the known. They reflect the current technical-digital production possibilities and can be read as a creative expression of contemporary social criticism, which must be defended against the assumption of pop-cultural arbitrariness, successive triviality.
The event will take place virtually. Access from about 7.20p.m. here.
With Anja Neumann (director and dramaturg, FU Berlin)
