tvvv.plotas TV project, discussion, videoconference (project in progress) time: at 8.00 p.m. CET during March 3 and 17, April 7 and 21, May 5 and 19, June 2 and 16 place: LTV channel, > iVisit > MAIN LOBBY > search for tvvv.plotas free downlode from www.iVisit.com tvvv.plotas is a multidisciplinary art project, carried out in co-operation with Lithuanian artist and artist from other countries, presented on TV and Internet, for the purpose of infiltrating into the popular mass media and creating a new-type of space where media experiments and communication can take place. The object of this project is polemics between contemporary life and contemporary art, presentation of artists and contemporary art itself, phenomena of subculture and their relationship with new technologies and means of communication, hot issues of social-political reality, contemporary audience and the mass media. Since contemporary art has branched out and penetrated into various fields of life, the project would try to explore the territory of this art. With the formation of a free society and capitalist relations in Lithuania, the pernicious role of mass consumption comes to the force. The advance of mass culture has elevated those forms of culture that adapt themselves more easily to mass aesthetics. Struggling against these forms, artists have to analyze and deconstruct them, that is to think critically. Consequently, the critical principles of media art can explain why today media art is so often found unacceptable. Media art is probably the only field to offer a new language helping to communicate in the complicated modern world. AIMS OF THE PROJECT tvvv.plotas is researching and discussing strategies of Ã®being minorÃ®. Individual practice, motivation, infiltration to media, artistsÃ survival are the starting points. The aims of the project are many-sided and interrelated: initiative: at the end of the 20th century, the talk about a crisis of art does not subside. However, it does not mean that the importance of art for an individual or society decreases. Art is able to penetrate and infiltrate itself into various, seemingly even impossible fields of life. Therefore, one of the most important aims of the project is to create place for a critical discourse using TV as the most effective force of the mass media to provoke the discussion within a society. This would provide an opportunity to transgress the boundaries of art ghettos beyond the traditional gallery space and create new conditions for the development of art. education: to compensate for the lack of information on contemporary art phenomena; to analyze the integration of new technologies and the art world; to explore phenomena of marginal and minority cultures and sub-cultures. analysis: to give an interpretation of these phenomena, to explain artistsÃ ideas and wishes and the function of works mentioned above in the social and political life from the viewpoint of artists themselves. consolidation: to seek to overcome the distance separating society from some individuals; to show the close link between technology and contemporary art; to introduce artists who are taking a keen interest in all urgent issues. incentive: to support the development of critical discourse, stimulate search of the artistsÃ identity. An important aspect of the proposed project is to invite artists for co-operation and analysis of the mass media phenomenon in the context of contemporary art to present the works of contemporary Lithuanian and foreign artists, to encourage the tendencies of globalization of contemporary Lithuanian culture. non-commercial: the executives, co-authors and contributors to the project are united by non-profit activity and attitude.
