The exhibition will show a comprehensive retrospective of the productions by Fernsehgalerie Gerry Schum (1968 - 1970) and videogalerie schum (1970-1973). More than twenty years after the exhibition entitled â€œGerry Schum" at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (1979/80), this show in Norwich is the first complete retrospective of one of the most important and complex artistic projects of the late 1960's and early 1970's. It is the only UK showing of this exhibition, initially presented at Dusseldorf Kunsthalle. Since then it has shown in Luxembourg, Portugal and comes to the Norwich Gallery from Musee de Art Modern de la Ville de Paris.
The 'television shows' LAND ART (broadcast on SFB on April 15th, 1969, with works by Richard Long, Barry Flanagan, Dennis Oppenheim, Robert Smithson, Marinus Boezem, Jan Dibbers, Walter de Maria and Michael Heizer) and IDENTIFICATIONS (broadcast on SWR on November 30th 1970, with works by Giovanni Anselmo, Joseph Beuys, Alighiero Boetti, Stanley Brouwn, Daniel Buren, Pierpaolo Calzolari, Gino de Dominicis, Ger van Elk, Hamish Fulton, Gilbert & George, Gry Kuehn, Mario Merz, Klaus Rinke, Ulrich Ruckriem, Reiner Ruthenbeck, Richard Serra, Keith Sonnier, Franz Erhard Walther, Lawrence Weiner and Gilberto Zorio) which at the time represented an entirely new form of showing art, will be shown. In addition, Schum's earlier documentary televison productions as well as all productions by videogalerie schum will be presented. Extensive documentary material, much of which has not been published until now, will broaden the spectrum of the exhibition.
Ulrike Groos, Barbara Hess and Ursula Wevers are the curators of the exhibition. Ursula Wevers was significantly involved from 1968 to 1972 in the Fernsehgalerie Gerry Schum/videogalerie schum productions, having, among other things, photographed them. Most of the works shown in this exhibition come from the Archive Gerry Schum and Ursula Wevers, Cologne.
The exhibition will be supplemented by an extensive catalogue, price Â£30 (Â£20 throughout the duration of exhibition).
