Free TV - Channel Zapping
Within the series “Televisual Life”

The structure of the project “Televisual Life. Art and entertainment programmes” made room for a wide range of different formats and forms of participation – longer and shorter, planned and spontaneous (within a given framework) programme segments – and thus is comparable to a kind of continuous “zapping”.

In addition to international contributions, the project involved primarily local co-operative activities with artists, producer platforms, private TV fans and freaks as well as (educational) institutions, which appreciably enhanced the dynamics of the whole. Five four-week exhibitions devoted to young Austrian artists who work in the media of drawing, photography, painting and woodcut and deal with aspects of television production, distribution and viewer response. A project entitled “pink box” that took an ironic look at studio technology with reference to retro and fake technology. Activities in co-operation with the Institut für Publizistik (University Institue for Media Communication) in Salzburg and the Kunstuniversität (University of Applied Arts) in Linz.

Workshops for school classes, initiated by our ARTgenossen art education group. Installation of a satellite dish for the reception of exotic television worlds on days on which no programmes are scheduled. Screenings of artists’ videos.
