October 21 to November 19, 1978. With twelve videos, the exhibition shows Douglas Davis’s oeuvre at the time. While criticizing the media, he uses it at the same time to convey artistic messages. In a performance Davis simulates a television dialogue: he speaks to the visitor from behind a glass pane, as if he were a television announcer. A monitor relays the dialogue. A live discussion between Aachen and New York is announced. From Michael H. Mann some 120 historical photo documents are shown, among them portrait shots of artists and writers such as de Chirico, Léger, Heckel, Mann, and Sartre.
