Televised Texts

Jenny Holzer

1990 | 00:13:00 | United States | English | Color | Mono | 4:3 | Video

Collection: Single Titles

Tags: Humor, Media Analysis, Television

Holzer adopts the form and language of commercial messages to disrupt communication, presenting kamikaze texts that are designed to stimulate thought, with humor, and inspire a critical attitude in an often passive audience. As in all of Holzer’s work, these television spots present deceptively simple sequences of text that mix provocative social commentary with resonant poetic reflection.

Note: Televised Texts are designed to appear separately on television, or other curated programs, anonymously and spontaneously. Contact us for a complete list of texts and availability.
