This video is based on an activist video produced by Richard Serra and Carlota Fay Schoolman in 1973 (www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbvzbj4Nhtk), entitled Television Delivers People— a clear and simple description of popular mass media as an instrument of social control.
The relationship Serra proposes in the video places the viewer of TV as the consumed, and the advertising corporation as the consumer.
In this video, select language is replaced (key below) from Serra’s original work to
recontextualize the video’s message to critique education as an instrument of subordination through debt control. Television = Education Advertiser = Customer Mass = Infinite Media = Debt People/Employees = Students Propaganda = Learning Entertainment = Art 75% = 1 trillion News = Debt Corporations = Student loan companies Shareholders = School
