A dance mashup, a bastard-pop collage stolen from 1.000 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. In AUTOPLAY, Moritz Ostruschnjak sends the audience off into a space of hyperlinks that amalgamate into an image of (digital) existence in the 21st century – utopia and consumer terror, subculture and populism are always just one click away from each other.
