The Festival of (In)appropriation #12
At 2220 Arts + Archives, 2220 W. Beverly Blvd., Los Angeles CA

This year’s Festival of (In)appropriation—an annual showcase for cutting-edge, experimental, found-media film and video—features a wide range of moving-image formats that probe the limits of audiovisual remix. Presenting artists from across the globe, these films produce meaning by repurposing existing visual and sonic media. Whether used as humor, critique, or recovery, found-media practices continue to challenge and place our understanding of the past into flux. Considering various techniques such as détournement, simulation, and digital remixing, this selection of short films considers appropriation as a subversive device to critically investigate the archive.
