Notes: Polish video artist Andrzej Paruzel, created a series of video installations in the late 1970s reflecting on the transformation of real space into the projected world of the television. Despite the Communist regime’s use of television for propaganda purposes, artists like Paruzel soon discovered its subversive, anti-totalitarian potential.
