A dance mashup, a bastard pop collage stolen from 1000 different sources: In AUTOPLAY, the copy & paste button becomes the leitmotif. Every movement, every sound, every image is an objet trouvé taken from the World Wide Web. From contemporary choreography to the Harlem Shake, from the video game Fortnite to shampoo commercials, from the selfie style on Instagram to the globally marketed pose of Michelangelo’s David – everything is recombined, reorganized and intermixed.
