Holzer adopts the form and language of commercial messages to disrupt communication, presenting kamikaze texts that are designed to stimulate thought, with humor, and inspire a critical attitude in an often passive audience. As in all of Holzerā€™s work, these television spots present deceptively simple sequences of text that mix provocative social commentary with resonant poetic reflection.

Note: Televised Texts are designed to appear separately on television, or other curated programs, anonymously and spontaneously. Call for a complete list of texts and availability.
