This is a Take-Over: Researching Remix is a weeklong experimental program that draws from design, digital culture, 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 alternative culture, 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? Is it worth it? Let me work it I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it - Missy Elliot The (ethical) boundaries and fringes of fashion, music, design, architecture and selfhood are central to the video and installation works, artists, conversations, performances and workshops that are presented during Dutch Design Week. With contributions by Wes Mapes (artist) Funzig & Leana Boven (collective) Sydney Rahimtoola (artist) Laeno Lashawn (artist and performer)
