On 26 January 1926, television pioneer John Logie Baird gave a first
successful public demonstration of image transmission. Eighty years later,
the IFFR brings you Tea Time TV, a series of guest interventions, talks,
workshops and telepresentations streaming from Satellite of Love, the
headquarters of a veritable TV commune located at Witte de With, center
for contemporary art, and TENT. Center for Visual Arts.

Focusing on artist and activist interventions with television, the Tea
Time TV sessions are online streamed events, each afternoon in the
Auditorium (2nd floor) of Witte de With during IFFR. In addition to Tea
Time TV, Satellite of Love hosts TV dinners with warm meals and elaborate
screening programs.

Sunday 29 January, 15:00 hrs: GATED_TV
GATED_TV will deal with copy right issues vs open archives, open source,
open archives. What new potential does digital television usher in for the
creative viewer? If viewing behavior can be monitored and recording
severely restricted, who ends up watching whom ? is this genuinely an
issue restricted to merely upholding a lexicon of copyrights? With Cory
Doctorow (Electronic Frontier Foundation), Juha Huuskonen (Pixelache),
Jennifer Rigby (BBC Creative Archive), Syb Groeneveld (Creative Commons
Netherlands), Rachel Baker (Ambienttv.net and Arts Council of England),
and others. Moderated by Christiaan Alberdingk Thijm (IP Lawyer).

(artist), Perry Bard (artist), and The Yes Men (culture jammers).
Moderated by Stephen Kovats (V2_, Institute for the Unstable Media).

Tuesday 31 January, 15:00 hrs: DISH_TV
DISH_TV will deal with satellites and the constellations around global
television. How can the artist challenge the already ubiquitously
innocuous technology and its accompanying baggage of eidetic imagery?

around global television, with Mark Bain (simulux), Menno Grootveld
(Rabotnik TV), Mauzz (DDS), Ewen Chardronnet  (elipse). Moderated by Adam
Hyde (r a d i o q u a l i a).
