Master of all trades, jack of none, Mark Amerika proves that you really can do it all. The cult novelist, media theorist, web publisher, VJ artist, and remix artist is here in Melbourne to discuss the future of the remix. In contemporary culture we have utilized this ambiguous term of ‘appropriation’ to encompass a giant pool of techniques and processes that are liable to fall under scrutiny in the legal world of copyright. Amerika will confront this taboo topic from a cultural and artistic viewpoint to illustrate the importance and potential of Remix(ing)thecontent.
