KUNST ALS KRITIEK. WANNEER IS KUNST WEL KRITIEK? 4. WANNEER DE KUNSTENAAR IN ALLE ERNST SPEELT [BRT VERSION]
This film is part of a series of short sketches thematic focusing on the question Wanneer is Kunst Wel Kritiek? (When is Art Criticism?). For this fourth episode, the answer – which also serves as title – is “when the artist is toying around in all seriousness”. How can it happen? 'Many a true word is spoken in jest' seems to tell us the Belgian artist Jef Geys (°1934). In his statement, framed as a public announcement, he uses the programme’s broadcasting time as a publicity stunt, revealing the mechanisms of the medium of television at the same time. In a lengthy word of thanks the extensive media bureaucracy is stripped of its front, mentioning the relative cost of the programme and the broadcasting time.
Part of the BRT (Belgian radio and television broadcast network) television series ’Openbaar Kunstbezit’ (’Public Art Heritage’). A second version was adapted for the NOS (Dutch radio and television broadcast network).
