Montage, today, is a widespread procedure that doesn’t concern just artistic production, but also our daily lives and the use everyone makes of that huge visual archive contemporary media places at our disposal. In a technologically advanced society, where the notion of postproduction regulates our relationship with images and objects, it is therefore necessary to thoroughly investigate the role, possibilities, and, most of all, anthropological and politic connotations of montage; and to ask ourselves whether – in comparison to the heroic years of the first avant-gardes – montage has become a faded and standardized practice or if it is a more and more effective means to understand and reprogram the world, especially in relation to the technical possibilities offered by new media and remix practices.
