Judy Radul »This Is Television«
Buchpräsentation und Gespräch / Book Presentation and Talk
Oranienstraße 161 10969 Berlin

»This Is Television« addresses the increasingly obsolete medium of television by way of the medium of the book—by extension commenting on media’s continuous changes of form and format. Through an interplay of theory and artistic research material, the book extends Judy Radul’s ongoing investigation of media with an idiosyncratic perspective on television—while still feeding off collective experience. The book thematizes television as a cultural container, both in its format as a »box« for content and as an ideologically saturated apparatus for reception.
In a conversation between Judy Radul and Ariane Beyn, the book will be discussed within the context of Radul’s intermediary practice. Topics such the act of turning book pages, the implications of camera motion and live video presentation systems, exhibition display and viewing habits will be considered with regard to Radul’s most recent installation works.
