Huey’sRe-Mix

About

Huey’s Re-Mix is a project that explores the multiplicity of appropriations of the original photograph of Huey P. Newton, co-founder and Minister of Defence of The Black Panther Party of Self-Defence depicted as a “Black Urban Warrior” (As said by Kathleen Cleaver). Taking the ‘copy’ as starting point the project seeks to answer the question: what message is sampled here?
