What is the mutual relationship between TV and art? The publication introduces artistic strategies used to explore TV and its specific contents and narrative forms in video, film, painting, sculpture and performance, ranging from the sculptural object of the TV box to the manipulation of the TV image and the use of its structure of lines and pixels in works of art. Television, which is among the most important inventions of the twentieth century, has developed a unique aesthetic and new communication structures worldwide. The early 1960s, the beginning of the development of TV as the first visual mass medium, were also the beginning of an artistic exploration of TV. From artists known for their work in this field such as Nam June Paik and Vostell to current works by younger generations of artists such as Thomas Demand, Tobias Rehberger, Ulrich Polster and Melanie Gilligan, this publication focuses on the analysis, paraphrasing and parody of TV formats and their pictorial nature, amongst other things.
