This international group exhibition, co-curated by Sarah Cook and Kathy Rae Huffman, includes a selection of TV, video installation and web-based works which demonstrate how artists have successfully challenged the dominant culture of television since the 1960s. The exhibition includes artists who have taken TV technology and turned it into a performance space, a cultural forum, and an interactive media platform, as well as projects which document how artists are now using the Internet to broadcast themselves.
