Old CRT screens lying on the sidewalks like Christmas trees in January are a familiar sight. They represent a farewell to the age of linear television. Where was family more family than in front of the TV in the evening? And which objects will we focus on when furnishing our living rooms in the future? Jochen Schmidt has not only been dealing with everyday family television for years, he also consumes everything television has to offer on a grand scale. With his columns, he writes German television history and paints a portrait of our society that is as clever as it is unmistakably funny.
The television is a discontinued model, linear television is about to come to an end. But what era are we saying goodbye to? Jochen Schmidt is a loyal TV watcher, whether it's movies, series, news, advertising or trash TV, he has been observing German television for decades. In his columns, he reflects on the role it plays in personality development, in locating oneself in the world and as a producer of society. And, of course, coping with everyday family television - the arrangement of the television situation, couple television versus individual television - sometimes harbors great potential for conflict...

Jochen Schmidt (*1970) has studied contradictory things in cities far away from each other. In 1999, he co-founded the Berlin reading stage "Chaussee der Enthusiasten". He is a translator and author, including the novels "Müller haut uns raus", "Schneckenmühle", "Zuckersand" and "Ein Auftrag für Otto Kwant". To mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, he published "Drüben und drüben - zwei deutsche Kindheiten" together with David Wagner. His collaboration with mezzotint artist Line Hoven has resulted in three books to date: "Dudenbrook", "Schmythologie" and "Paargespräche". 2023 saw the publication of "Zu Hause an den Bildschirmen. Schmidt watches television" was published by C.H.Beck. Jochen Schmidt lives in Berlin.
