Recycling_Sampling_Jamming [de Berlin]

header.jpgRecycling_Sampling_Jamming. Artistic Strategies Now Festival/ Symposium Re-* :: February 26-28, 2009 :: Academy of Arts, Hanseatenweg 10, Berlin-Tiergarten.

The interdisciplinary festival seeks to examine through lectures, concerts, videoscreenings and an acoustic bar the artistic cross-media practices of Recycling, Sampling and Culture Jamming, which rely on the repetition and recreation of the Old and the transformation in the New. Reputable scientists and international artists from music, arts, netarts, film, design and advertising will exemplify at the Academy of Arts, Berlin, the current cultural and political relevance as well as the distinctions of these strategies.

The Festival focuses on recycling systems in the age of digitalisation, web 2.0. and archives filled to the hilt. Recycling and Sampling are not only digital and reproduction techniques but stand for the lifestyle of a new generation that reverts as consumers as well as producers to image-, sound- and textsources of a common cultural memory.

The practice of reference and above all of appropriation is historically rooted in collage and montage, in ready-made and appropriation art. The current scientific and artistic contributions deal with updated questions and topics of the arts dealing with what already existing. New communication strategies in the internet (YouTube) will be explored, as well as innovative forms of production in the field of design, videoesthetics and music. The meanings of the exemplary terms will be closely examined and presented and their variety will be presented.
