"I pity the French Cinema because it has no money. I pity the American Cinema because it has no ideas." - Jean-Luc Godard.
Television is among the most important inventions of the twentieth century, one that developed unique aesthetics and new communication structures. Since it first became popular in the years after World War II, the medium has spread around the globe, to the point where four-fifths of the world&;s households own a television set today. But is there a mutual relationship between art and television? And if so, what is it? In Tele-Gen, editors Stephan Berg and Dieter Daniels assemble a distinguished team of writers and artists to delve into the complex and fascinating interaction of television and art.
- This book reveals that as television was becoming the first mass visual medium in the early 1960s, the artistic consideration of television was also beginning. It introduces the artistic strategies used to explore television, its specific contents, and its narrative forms in video, film, painting, sculpture, and performance.
