This program draws into focus our own (often productive) sloppiness in the language surrounding artistic production that includes the work of others. In this case, these works are less interested in (though not opposed to) ideas like détournement, appropriation, reenactment, “found” footage, glitch, covers, samples, collage, etc. than to how we can apply the thinking behind the music industry’s idea of the remix into the contexts and histories of experimental film, video art and critical cinema. Think: the extended remix, the dub remix, the club remix, the dirty remix, the radio remix, the house remix, the porch remix, the czech remix, the lights on remix. Serious is fun, fun is serious. Seat dancing allowed. Fresh looks assumed.
