Since 2005 Artyčok.TV (ART–y-CHOK-e or artichoke) has been reporting from the art scene in Central Europe: Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Serbia, Moldavia and also from the United Kingdom.

Artyčok was founded as a non-for-profit broadcasting internet TV platform at the Academy of Arts in Prague to feature news from the contemporary arts scene. In 2005, digital archive was established for contributions from exhibition's openings, interviews with artists/curators and documentaries from workshops, art competitions and lectures.

In the past five years we have featured more than 700 contributions, which are published online at 8 AM of the Central European Time everyday. In our online digital archives you can find works of more than 1500 artists from around the world.


ARTYCOK Recommends:


Prague / ALPY IM VRANNÍM SLUNÍČKY NO.5
Visual artist Mark Ther presents and directs the fifth part in a series „ALPS IM VRANNÍM SLUNÍČKY NO 5.“ for the ArtyChoke platform where he visits an exhibition by Herbert Tobias, the Trmal’s villa by architect Jan Kotěra and an exhibition of props from a children’s TV programme in the eighties in former Czechoslovakia.

Berlin / HACKS 4 DEMOCRACY

The event with a subheading ?a hackday on open data? focused on presentations, collaboration and resolutions; discussing the current position of the elites in today’s democracies as its common theme.
Featuring: McKinnon Rob, Lindenberg Friedrich, Wehrmeyer Stefan, Dietrich Daniel and Kreutz Christian

Warsaw / DO ME GOOD
Interactive installation DO ME GOOD attempts to create a current context for The Women?s Day in Poland which has had a rather bad reputation for its links with the past communist regime.
Featuring: Bujnowska Aleksandra, Grochowska Mika, Mamzeta Monika, Mazurkiewicz Jacek, Zakrocki Patryk, MASH/HER/DIP, Rebelka Jakub, Wesołowska Ala and Siębor Sebastian

London / BILLY CHILDISH: UNKNOWABLE BUT CERTAIN
Artist, musician and writer Billy Childish is a cult figure, and one who has gained an international following, but this is the first time a public institution has brought together a major solo exhibition to encompass his extraordinary career.

Bratislava / BROŇA SCHRAGGEOV?: ME AND MY BROTHER

An intimate statement, expressed in the original handwriting follows the tradition of illustrated books and in conjunction with its subject matter it revives the genre?s exchange of communication with audience.

Belgrade / LECTURE PEFORMANCE
Is contemporary art a product of fascination with aesthetic objects or a space for a generation of knowledge? How does art operate in relation to knowledge in academic, science or media realms and how does this exchange of information work? What aesthetic and formal methods does it employ in order to establish this specific modus operandi?
Featuring: Backström Fia, Benjamin Walter, Boudry Pauline, Lorenz Renate, Graham Dan, Fraser Andrea, Leckey Mark, Morris Robert, Show Pinky, Piratbyrån, Rosler Martha, Spomenik Grupa, TkH, V-Girls, Voss Jeronimo, Zdjelar Katarina and Verwoert Jan

České Budějovice / LAWRENCE WEINER: TAKEN FROM THE WIND AND BOLTED TO THE GROUND
Lawrence Weiner (1942) was one of the first and most prominent artists in New York who were in the forefront of a new emerging artform - the conceptual art of the late 1960s.
In České Budějovice he will introduce a new site-specific installation still bearing his authentic signature style he has worked in for some time now. The work is available both in original English and Czech versions.

Video Art / David Možný: VIRTUAL SOUL WASTE

Virtual soul waste video is a short visual narrative taking us on a trip through the world of odinary urban environments. It is made out of digitalised offset prints taken from books on 70’s socialist architecture and about houskeeping. Crumbling scenes of buildings and empty rooms evoke the intimate atmosphere balancing between cosiness and cataclysm.
David Možný is graduate of art education at the Pedagogical Faculty of Masaryk University in Brno. In 2000 he started working with a computer and after a few video-installations and practice of VJing he succeeded in international context with video for the band Naše věc . His work can  be considered as a top in animation and new media not only in the Czech Republic.
