2015 DCISFF Program - Page 9

FAKING IT General Idea, Test Tube, 28:15 min, 1979 The Canadian artist collective General Idea β€” AA Bronson, Felix Partz and Jorge Zontal β€” forged a unique conceptual practice that deployed parody and irony to critique the artworld and popular media culture. Produced by De Appel, Amsterdam, while General Idea was in residence there, Test Tube was conceived as a program for television. Presented under the brand β€œThe Color Bar Lounge,” a cocktail bar in the mythical 1984 Miss General Idea Pavilion, the program is a hybrid of popular television formats, including talk show, soap opera, news magazine, and infomercial.
