This Unruly: a repository of video cut-ups

The cut-up video remix subcategory describes clips, which have generally been produced as a critique of particular political or social circumstances and whose form tends to be more experimental in nature.

Works within this category often use stock/archival footage, especially clips which are very earnest (and according to modern sensibilities, appears naive and unconvincing solemn).

Creator: Anonymous [Razvan Radu]. (2017). 2017 Romanian protests / Killing In The Name cut-up.

This clip intercuts news footage from the 2017 political protests in Bucureşti with Rage Against the Machine's 1991 song "Killing In the Name". In doing so the protester's exclamation: "sa va fie ruşine" ("shame on you") has been made to coincide with RATM's statement: "fuck you, I won't do what you tell me". So that through its appropriation in this way sentiment, which is contained within the alternative rock classic appears to support that presented in this contemporary Romanian political protest.
