I found this paragraph on the blog babylonisburning.net in a post entitled:
"As we turned to Heartfield’s collage, I asked the students: do you see any similar practices at work in ”Die Rationalisierung marschiert!”? And, indeed, they quickly began to identify the similarities between Cubist collage and MySpace page – - Heartfield’s use of fragments, the role of the artist as curator, the logic of spatial (versus temporal) organization, etc. The students also however pointed to a new connection between Heartfield and MySpace – - the question of originality. Heartfield’s collage foregrounds the cultural “composting” central to collage, the ways in which collage self-consciously recycles existing cultural materials. This mashup aesthetic – - so fundamental to the web – - both denigrates originality (“The only materials we have to create with are already created!”) and exalts creativity (“Look what I’ve managed to do with what you already thought you knew!”). Reading MySpace through this dialectic, inspired by Heartfield’s collage, started a lively discussion about the meaning and status of creativity in today’s remix culture."
