Professeur d’art et d’histoire de l’art à l’Université de Boulder au Colorado, artiste et écrivain, Mark Amerika nous proposera une conférence-démonstration sur l’art de remixer les arts.
In "Remixing Personae," Mark Amerika will reveal how his background as an avant-pop literary artist informs his current digital arts practice. Amerika’s body of work constructs fluid, metafictional identities that he strategically remixes into an ongoing "pseudoautobiographical" performance.
In his presentation, he will remix samples from a variety of sources including French post-structuralist theory, Beatnik poetry, hypertextual consciousness, contemporary art history, and the language of new media. Remixing his digital flux personae across various intermedia platforms, Amerika will read, lecture, perform and play with a curated selection of his new media artworks over the last two decades.
