Re-mix & Re-search:
whose cultural appropriation is this?

This is a Take-Over: Researching Remix is a weeklong experimental program during the Dutch Design Week from October 19 – 27 at TAC (Temporary Art Centre). It draws from design, digital culture, architecture, reflection and research within contemporary urban arts & culture. With this program Metro54 investigates and plays (with) experimental translations, forms of imagination and expressions of the friction between remix culture and cultural appropriation. To what extent does remix as a research method offer ways to produce counterculture, design and art from a decolonial lens? How can we read against the binary notion of how design is seen in contemporary arts and culture?

The (ethical) boundaries and fringes of fashion, music, design, architecture and selfhood are central to the artists, their video and installation works, conversations, performances and workshops. With contributions by:

🔸Leana Boven & Funs ‘Funzig’ Janssen

🔸Hab Labs

🔸Sydney Rahimtoola

🔸Laeno Lashawn

On October 25, 26 and 27 we will host a series of events ranging from a round table conversation on  remix, selfhood, identity and language to a lip sync performance to A poetic live radio show that looks into the genealogy of remix within design and hip hop culture.
