location: Herbert Foundation

Filmmaker and programmer Gerry Schum (Cologne, 1938-1973) was a pioneer in the art and media landscape of the 1960s and 1970s. In collaboration with Ursula Wevers, Schum realized "Fernsehgalerie" for German television, a unique and unconventional exhibition project that brought artwork via tv into the living room.
In the context of the exhibition 'Time Extended / 1964 - 1978. Part II', OFFoff and Herbert Foundation organize the symposium 'TV as a Fireplace'.
Through lectures, conversations and screenings, Schum, his oeuvre and unique position in the international arts and media landscape are discussed. 'Land Art' (1969) and 'Identifications' (1970) will be shown.
