Artists versus Television

Intervention versus Mediation

    Abstract

    This presentation focuses on the artists’ continuing relationship with broadcast television; or rather the non-relationship, as the history is not generally one of partnership. It is perhaps a history of competition for control between the artist and the broadcaster, with many different strategies employed by artists in order to establish some sort of equal role with that of the broadcaster. I term the artists’ efforts Intervention. The broadcaster always seeks to package, to explain, to mediate the artist’s work in order to place it within the familiar broadcast landscape. Therefore the broadcaster’s approach is always Mediation.
