ERC Presents Festival of (In)appropriation
Whether you call it collage, compilation, found footage, détournement, or recycled cinema, the incorporation of already existing media into new artworks is a practice that generates novel juxtapositions and new meanings and ideas, often in ways entirely unrelated to the intentions of the original makers. Such new works are, in other words, “inappropriate.” This act of (in)appropriation may even produce revelations about the relationship between past and present, here and there, intention and subversion, artist and critic, not to mention the "producer" and "consumer" of visual culture itself. Founded in 2009, the Festival of (In)appropriation is a yearly showcase of contemporary, short (20 minutes or less), audiovisual works that appropriate existing film, video, or other media and repurpose it in “inappropriate” and inventive ways. The show is curated by Jaimie Baron, Lauren Berliner, and Greg Cohen.

HERE COME THE VIDEOFREEX
Finally it can be told. In 1969 CBS contracted a group of young countercultural revolutionaries to document their changing times. When the project was given the hook by network execs, the Videofreex, as they were known, stole all the equipment and went on a documentary rampage. This is their fascinating story.

MARLENE DIETRICH: THE SCARLET EMPRESS
One of the landmarks of Hollywood’s high-kink, pre-code era. Marlene Dietrich and Josef von Sternberg seem to be having a grand time subverting the censors, the historians and anybody else conveniently in the vicinity with this story of the sexually insatiable Empress Catherine the Great of Russia.
