If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Jussi Parikka.
A screening of the fantastic RIP : A Remix Manifesto and followed up by a panel discussion with some leading technology and culture writers, presented by CoDE-institute (ARU) (as part of the Festival of Ideas):
Arts Picturehouse, Cambridge October 30, Saturday, 15.00-17.30 Tickets from the Picturehouse ticket counter
“In RIP : A Remix Manifesto, Web activist and filmmaker Brett Gaylor explores issues of copyright in the information age, mashing up the media landscape of the 20th century and shattering the wall between users and producers.
The film’s central protagonist is Girl Talk, a mash-up musician topping the charts with his sample-based songs. But is Girl Talk a paragon of people power or the Pied Piper of piracy? Crea…tive Commons founder, Lawrence Lessig, Brazil’s Minister of Culture Gilberto Gil and pop culture critic Cory Doctorow are also along for the ride.”
The screening is followed up by a panel discussion with - Bill Thompson (technology writer and columnist for the BBC Online, as well as head of partnership development for Archive Development projects at the BBC ) - John Naughton (academic at Cambridge University, writer and columnist for the Observer), - Becky Hogge (technology writer, columnist for the New Statesman and former executive director of the Open Rights Group), - Jussi Parikka (media theorist and director of the CoDE-institute at Anglia Ruskin University) and - Geoff Gamlen (a founding member of the remix-music/video group Eclectic Method have been called upon by artists like Fatboy Slim & U2 and by film, video, and television companies such as New Line Cinema and Palm Pictures to create custom a/v remixes.)
The panelists address the themes raised by RIP : Remix Manifesto and a range of interesting and provocative approaches to cultural production in the digital age, copyright and its alternatives, and free culture.
