SCREENING

Phones, Cheap, and Out of Control

Saturday, Feb 12, 2011

Live TV + viewer call-ins = magic, or something like it. Long before CNN’s Larry King Live, public access programs invited audiences to talk back and join the show. This medley of “interactive television” excerpts is packed with punkish put-downs, left-field expertise, and Warholian dead air.

Free with museum admission.
