QUOTENPUBLIKUM (2014)

13 video portraits (13 x 3′, HD, colour, sound)

Quoten­pub­likum is a series of 13 Por­traits: 16 renowned Aus­tri­an experts with dif­fer­ent pro­fes­sion­al rela­tions to media cul­ture are por­trayed watch­ing TV. They rep­res­ent a sub­ject­ively selec­ted, diverse cross sec­tion of a pro­fes­sion­al audi­ence and seem­ingly imper­son­ate the abstract notion of the “Quote” (Ger­man term for audi­ence rat­ing), whose rep­res­ent­ativ­ity and eli­cit­a­tion meth­ods are addressed and ques­tioned.

The pro­duc­tion of Quoten­pub­likum was fun­ded and first broad­cast by Aus­tri­an pub­lic tele­vi­sion ORFIII in 2014.
