About this item

remixthecontext is a cunning and satirical collection of "theoretical fictions" composed by artist, novelist and media theorist Mark Amerika. A compelling riff on the classic Platonic dialogue, Amerika's remixthecontext features Walt Whitman Benjamin, a Professor of Creative Urgency who intellectually jams with an assemblage of characters that resemble the actual artists, poets, and scholars who populate the university café culture depicted in the book. Each chapter is enlivened by Amerika's provocative mash-up of literary metafiction, new media rhetoric and witty repartee setting the stage for a series of freewheeling exchanges that playfully investigate a multitude of themes including remix culture, psychic automatism, gender fluidity, social media dystopia, MOOCs as performance art, and the challenges presented by cutting-edge digital arts and humanities curricula within a sclerotic academic environment.
