The web project Artyčok.TV started as the project of students from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague. It has become an extensive archive with thousands of audio-visual contributions from more than thirty countries all over world. At the same time it is a unique instrument of articulation for the artistic community which has participated in its creation.
The Internet TV Atyčok.TV originated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague in 2005 and it is a unique platform in the European context. Artyčok.TV is currently a research work place. However, its creators and users perceive it more particularly as a live instrument, a permanently growing corpus of (not only Czech) fine and visual arts. By means of both Czech and international collaborators, who are often creative artists themselves, the range of Artyčok.TV's actions reaches more than thirty countries all over the world.
Its extensive database includes interviews with curators and artists, reports from exhibitions, vernissages and other live actions such as lectures and workshops. Online exhibitions focused on visual arts are accessible on the webpage in cooperation with their curators. On http://artycok.tv great attention is paid to videoart which, because of its dynamic character, is perceived as a suitable medium for reflections on form and the possibilities of getting a grasp of contemporary arts.
Besides being a source of information and a comprehensive archive, Artyčok.TV is a medium for contact between artists and the general public. It is a live medium which is constantly open to new forms, new cooperation and closer interconnection with the fine arts. The current state as well as future tendencies of Artyčok.TV platform; a selected contribution from the archive including the latest report about GASK, the Gallery of the Central Bohemian Region will be introduced by Vjera Borozan, Jiří Havlíček, Johana Švarcová and Jan Vidlička.
