Organized by Jason Eppink, Associate Curator of Digital Media
From supercuts to mashups to remixes, Cut Up celebrates the practice of re-editing popular media to create new work, presenting contemporary videos by self-taught editors and emerging artists alongside landmarks of historic and genre-defining reappropriation.
Update: After successfully arguing Fair Use against a YouTube takedown notice by Lucasfilm in 2011, I was unable to defend it against a second copyright claim by Disney in 2020. The original Star Wars - A New Hope Chewbacca Supercut was blocked on YouTube. However, the remaining episodes are still available!
