REMIX: someone’s culture is another man’s trend
This program threads act as snapshots of the music styles and art forms that live in different worlds. Remix Culture looks into exchange forms, hustles and the lingua franca of urban youth culture, and simultaneously questions what the journey from the continent of Africa, via Jamaica to United States means for global counter culture in the local and European context. The concept of remix is encountered and embedded through DJ’ing within popular culture, but it also symbolizes the unlimited possibilities for production, sharing and dissemination of the sonic and visual langue of contemporary urban culture.
With this program Metro54 aims to trace the current sonic processes and artistic production that are changing the course and future of contemporary popular culture and its imagination.
