Vicki Bennett - ovvero People Like Us - ne fa dono al Cafe Oto, e il Cafe Oto ne fa dono a tutti noi: Holiday Mix.

Under the name People Like Us, artist Vicki Bennett has been making work available via cd, dvd and vinyl releases, radio broadcasts, concert appearances, gallery exhibits and online streaming and distribution since 1992. Bennett has developed an immediately recognisable aesthetic repurposing pre-existing footage to craft audio and video collages with an equally dark and witty take on popular culture. She sees sampling and appropriation as folk art sourced from the palette of contemporary media and technology, with all of the sharing and cross-referencing incumbent to a populist form. Embedded in her work is the premise that all is interconnected and that claiming ownership of an “original” or isolated concept is both preposterous and redundant.
