Tom McCormick: Compilation Nation, The Rise of the Supercut

Every third Tuesday of the month at the Museum of Contemporary Art explore the intersection between art, technology and the internet as we meet the brilliant minds who make the virtual world more interesting. This February Tom McCormick traces the history and pre-history of “supercuts,” online videos that compile patterns or tropes from popular culture. Supercuts recall some of the 20th century’s most notable avant-garde film and video art and have become one of the 21st’s most important popular genres.

FREE for Illinois residents
