The concept of aesthetics is traditionally connected with art and high cultue (e.g. literature, theater, pictorial art, etc.), whereas mass media such as television are usually associated with a lack of cultural quality, originality and authenticity and consequently with a lack of aesthetics. And, undoubtedly, most television programs will fail if judged by the aesthetics standards and valuation criteria of traditional art forms. However, television as a medium also has aesthetic aspects. The aim of the anthology is to describe and analyze television as an aesthetic phenomenon. Among the TV genres and program formats dealt with are: talk shows, television documentaries, police series, TV sport, TV fiction, TV advertising, everyday talk on television, comedy series, TV journalism, and interactive program formats.Agger, Gunhild is the author of 'Aesthetics of Television' with ISBN 9788773076231 and ISBN 8773076236.
