Deutsches Haus and Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) presented the work of filmmaker and television art pioneer Gerry Schum in two evenings of rare screenings. From 1968 to 1970, Schum produced and broadcast original artist films on German television, through his Fernsehgalerie (TV Gallery) Gerry Schum. Schum's Fernsehgalerie enlisted artists to conceive artwork specifically intended for viewing on TV. This radical model bypassed traditional institutions with the direct dispersal of artwork into the domestic space.
