Tour: Jef Cornelis

Join us for a guided tour of the exhibition with Grace Harrison, Fellow at Liverpool Biennial.

When he worked at VRT (the Dutch-language Belgian public broadcasting corporation), Belgian television director Jef Cornelis (BE) made over 200 films. Many of them are included in this exhibition and are newly translated into English.

Through subversion, decoys and inventiveness, Jef managed to circumvent the pre-formatted styles and demands of mass media, in this case TV. He explored how art, architecture and culture are represented and talked about – all the while asking questions about the medium of television itself. Often broadcast during prime slots in the evening, the content and style of his television programmes interrupted the comfortable routine of home viewing.
