Programme/Project objectives

Artyčok.TV: the aim to put together the biggest, still missing, archive of contemporary art in Europe that would serve as an educational, research tool for art students and professionals and would be a source of current strategies and approaches to artistic practice also for the wider and lay public. The latter is often „scared“ to visit exhibitions of contemporary art on the grounds of not understanding it, or being afraid not to understand it. Artyčok.TV : open archive will provide information on contemporary art – artists talking/ explaining their art, curators presenting various artistic strategies – thus w ill contribute to a better understanding of it among the wide public and will lead to its better public acceptance. Through reportages created by the local teams /consisting of a curator responsible for an overall conception of capturing the events on a local art scene, an artist being a cameraman responsible also for editing/ it will address and present the peculiarities of particular art scenes / Czech, Slovak, Serbian and Slovenian/, creating an adequate critical platform for subsequent mutual confrontations of particular art scenes and their international reflection as well. Artyčok.tv as online contemporary art television is accessible for everyone in the world and it can provide a platform for communication, confrontation and cultural dialogues
