Horitzó TV

[ Daily program ]

HoritzóTV is an exhibition project and a worldwide meeting point for alternative television agents and proposals which are broadcast from analogical and digital platforms.

HoritzóTV investigates and screens interactive, “horizontal” television projects in a context in which everyone can be both broadcaster and receiver.

HoritzóTV puts an ear right to the ground and broadcasts to the world, taking advantage of cultural differences for better navigation.

The laboratory of televisions that brings together subjectivities and differences. The television that does not mistake culture for the market, or objectivity for a monopoly..

HoritzóTV is, above all, a place of encounter, a stage on which agents from the city and the world can appear and engage in a dialogue. With mixed and varied programming, HoritzóTV features fashion, sport, music, the economy, cinema, competitions, literature, news and even advertising that show other realities and other ways of seeing the world, of informing and of communicating. This year international discussion revolves around two central themes: “We’re Still Here…”, dedicated to communities in extreme situations that take on the responsibility for disseminating information about themselves, and “Ownership and Belonging”, which makes diverse readings of the meaning and scope of intellectual property rights.
As always, everyone is invited to take part in the live broadcasts, offer any information they like and propose possible programmes.

Magnus Eriksson, representative of the Piratbyran think tank will meet groups who are critical in the current reading of intellectual property rights.
