WIR SIND HIER – Make your own REMIX of history

In Occupy History, users can produce a six-second looped video using the Twitter tool Vine. Vines should show how history (and memory along with it) has been transformed by the lens of pop culture. Pictures and symbols have been given new interpretations and new connotations. A few popular examples are Hipster Hitler, Che Guevara as a pop star, or Abraham Lincoln the vampire hunter.
