Mis-appropriation and re-appropriation: An interview with Oreet Ashery
The present interview is a discussion about Oreet Ashery’s diverse body of work with a focus on the most recent work Party for Freedom. It offers a clear trajectory of the artist’s early stages of work till the present and gives an account of certain creative strategies that Ashery has developed through her practice. What becomes obvious is an emphasis on the principles of appropriation and re-appropriation to counteract mis-appropriations that exist in dominant discourses. Appropriation and re-appropriation constitute not only creative strategies, but also survival techniques in a globalized world.

- Adaptation, or the conversion of oral, historical or fictional narratives into stage drama has been common practice for centuries. In our own time the processes of cross-generic transformation continue to be extremely important in theatre as well as in the film and other media industries. Adaptation and the related areas of translation and intertextuality continue to have a central place in our culture with a profound resonance across our civilisation.
