Curators Jaimie Baron, Greg Cohen, and Lauren Berliner are delighted to present the latest edition of the Festival of (In)appropriation. Sponsored by Los Angeles Filmforum, the program features an astonishing variety and complexity of moving-image appropriation art, including a riotous YouTube reaction video mash-up, an exquisite found-footage ready-made, a queer-Asian-American homage to Hollis Frampton, several sublime works of cut-out animation, and a pseudo-documentary (or is it?) about the lost work of an early-Soviet scientist dedicated to the exploration of “human mental projection”.
Founded in 2009, the Festival of (In)appropriation is a yearly showcase of contemporary, short, audiovisual works that appropriate existing film, video, and other media and repurpose them in “inappropriate” and inventive ways.
