Assemblage, collage, appropriation, remix, mash-up.... From its venerable history of engagement by the Dadaists, collage and appropriation have long been exciting artistic processes. Yet in view of recent legal cases involving well known artists, the ethics of appropriation are being scrutinized more than ever. Meanwhile, copyright law is struggling to keep up with digital technology's ease and speed in remixing and reassembling sounds, images and clips. At the same time, radical underground artists and film makers draw attention to the process of remixing as a political act. The possibility of transformation of the detritus of culture into new forms are almost endless.

Creating art out of existing materials: ripping it up, reassembling and remaking can be political, and it can be poetic. "rip it up, mash it up, stick it up!" explores many aspects of the artworks that come about as a result of the process of re-assemblage, collaging, appropriation and remixing. The event presents a group exhibition of paper collage, along with a screening of short films April 15 at 7 pm, including a special presentation of Human Remains by Jay Rosenblatt, which uses archival material to “tell” the story of the private lives of history’s most horrific leaders.
THE SCREENING INCLUDES FILMS BY
Margarita Athanasiou, Patrizia Monzani, Harriet Macdonald, Rafi Nizam, Howard Cohen, Tim Baker, Gillian McIver, Enzo Perin, Nazir Tanbouli.
STUDIO 75 would like to gratefully thank Jay Rosenblatt for permission to screen Human Remains for this event.
