Mashup the Archive is a reader that expands upon and documents the titular artistic intervention series at Iwalewahaus, Universität Bayreuth. Starting in 2012, the artists featured in this reader completed residencies at Iwalewahaus, where they were invited to interact with its collection. The collection consists of not only contemporary visual art but also artifacts, such as textual documents, music and historical found objects, and the resulting projects ranged from photographs and films to site-specific performances and remixed musical compositions. This volume presents documentation of the artistic projects alongside curatorial texts and roundtable discussions.
