I suggest to read REMIXTHEBOOK by Mark Amerika, Professor at the University of Minnesota.
REMIXTHEBOOK is a provocative textual performance that is at once a dazzling model of the literary remix and a state-of-the-art reflection on remix culture, REMIXTHEBOOK captures the unique and continually shifting digital moment in which we live and situates the remix as an art form and literary intervention.
Also visit remixthebook.com, to facilitate new ways of participating in remix culture by inviting other artists and writers to create remixthebook mashups of their own, pushing the boundaries of art and literary culture further, beyond the current publishing paradigms.
“Think of remixthebook as DJ Tool made from rhythms downloaded, ripped, mixed, spliced, diced, and burned into our collective hard drives, then re-uploaded. It’s a piece of conceptual hardware that exists somewhere between how we experience information and how information aesthetics has transformed the human condition. It’s that deep.”
—Paul D. Miller aka DJ Spooky, That Subliminal Kid
In 2009 Miltos Manetas wrote the “Piracy Manifesto”, a strong statement that sets a turning point for understanding the 2.0 wide culture of remix and its political implications.
We can state that remix culture is everywhere. We find it in net art, photography, video, music, activism, blogs. It all started on a conceptual basis with Duchampian readymades (where he recontextualizes “found source material”).
The “Piracy Manifesto” by Miltos Manetas has been presented at the 1st “Internet Pavilion” during the Venice Biennale in 2009, and at MAXXI Museum in Rome in 2010.

Rough documentation of the second half of the performance made in Brescia, Spazio Contemporanea, on October 15, 2011, as part of the exhibition “Collect the WWWorld. The Artist as Archivist in the Internet Age” curated by Domenico Quaranta and produced by LINK Center for the Arts of the Information Age.
I am an art dealer supporting artists working at the furthest reaches of technological experimentation as well as those responding to the broader aesthetic and political implications of new tools and media. My project @ Einztein is dedicated to the presentation, promotion, and critique of emerging artistic practices that engage technology in the internet age. Einztein serves here as a platform for exchange and collaboration to encourage and expand the communities around these practices. This project includes discussion, archives and artists portfolios. I would like to share and draw attention to the complex interrelationships between technology, art and culture.
