Huey Remixed is an ongoing research project that investigates how remix strategies are used in design, art and visual culture. The collection of remixes of ‘Huey P. Newton in a rattan chair’ is a case study that aims to deconstruct the principles of remix through methods such as sampling, collecting, indexing, appropriating, contextualising and collaging.
This first volume, titled ‘The Timeline’, captures and collects the many reproductions and appropriations of the iconic image of the co-founder and Minister of Defense of the Black Panther Party and presents them chronologically.
The collection of reproductions and appropriations serves as the foundation for further understanding of the principles of remix in art, design and visual culture. In the upcoming volumes, we will investigate the role of the original and the copy in remix, the relationship between author and audience, the progression and regression of meaning and the concept of rewriting history through the art of remix.
