>>tv-tv manifesto
>>tv-tv is everyone's television. Today it has 
>>become easy to produce tv. Technical innovation 
>>has it made possible to produce television with 
>>your own equipment. We will use and misuse all 
>>possible tools to make tv. tv-tv is broadcast 
>>quality on our terms: everyone can make tv.
>>tv-tv is self-organized tv, neither the state's 
>>apparatus nor the market's tv. tv-tv is a 
>>network of independent producers who all are 
>>longing to make tv. tv-tv wants to break the 
>>traditional monopoly of the means of production 
>>and right to broadcast.
>>tv-tv is publicness. We see tv as an active 
>>part of the public sphere in which society is 
>>mediated. tv-tv is an effort to produce another 
>>public sphere.
>>tv-tv is investigating tv. we want to 
>>experiment with tv, make time for an 
>>investigation of tv's possibilities and break 
>>with the rhythms offered by most tv channels. 
>>We will refuse ratings based generalizations of 
>>what people want, and rather investigate tv as 
>>a setting for communication. We want to break 
>>the monotony that characterizes tv today.
>>tv-tv is tv of the everyday. With tv-tv we will 
>>create a public based on everyday experience in 
>>Copenhagen and around the world. tv-tv will be 
>>a station with a short distance between being 
>>on the street and being on the air. We shall 
>>attempt a direct and diverse mode of address, 
>>taking its point of view in the passions we 
>>encounter and the abilities we establish.
>>tv-tv is critical tv. We do not aim to reflect 
>>society, and we will try to abolish the 
>>'viewer' as a passive consumer. We will not 
>>just produce tv: we will produce tv-tv.
