24-Hour global stream for the environment.

Climate change is not a purely political issue; nor is it limited to the COP21 conference in Paris. It is above all a human issue, one that connects us all, everywhere in the world.
In this context, Elizabeth Markevitch is launching ART SPEAKS OUT

She explains: “At ikonoTV — the only broadcaster in the world to showcase art and only art 24/7 — we believe that art can give a new and powerful voice to the pressing concerns of global warming and man-made natural disaster, and that we can use art’s emotional appeal intelligently to convey the urgency of these issues in a deeper, more immediate way.”

The project is to invite artists to join forces and to put together a 24-hour playlist of contemporary video works based on environmental themes, free of any additional commentary. Because these concerns affect us all, and because art’s language is universal, artists are probably best equipped to enlighten and to touch us.

“This is why we present these issues from an artist’s point of view — to implement art’s power to speak out on this serious matter and appeal directly to human feeling.”

ART SPEAKS OUT will be a global event, broadcast exclusively on ikonoTV.
It will run uninterruptedly from:
6 p.m. on Saturday, December 5 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, December 6 (CET).

ikonoTV’s global reach includes satellite transmission, SmartTV applications with access to over 200 million households worldwide; a 24/7 stream for all online and mobile devices; and over 135,000 Amazon downloads in only five months, making us the number one app in our category in the US, the UK, and Germany.

is a worldwide forum — an invitation to open our eyes to climate change, our responsibility to the planet, and the necessity of adopting measures of sustainability.

The on-air video art exhibition Art Speaks Out presents five curated sections of video works about environmental issues, which build up a crescendo of concern and disquiet. The exhibition guides us through different emotions and degrees of urgency (Contemplation, Concern, Anxiety, Fear and Hope), which are disclosed in a recurring way during the show.
