Walter Pichler

TV-Helm (Tragbares Wohnzimmer), 1967

Sculpture Polyester, varnished white, integrated TV-monitor with TV connection 59 x 120 x 43 cm
The TV-Helmet or Portable Living Room, as it is also called, was Pichler’s reaction to the “political art” called for at the end of the 1960s. He was of the opinion that this criticism should start directly with the new media—television and telecommunications—which were just coming into their own at the time. Pichler’s fictive scenarios have already become reality: the TV-Helmet anticipated the data goggles of cyberspace. According to Pichler, an ensemble is created when it is combined with the standard suit, which provides for so-called body applications—finger and knee tauteners and integrated stereo radios. “We have regarded clothing as being the first layer of the architecture: clothing as the first covering and only then the room.” (Sabine Breitwieser/Nadja Wiesener)
