iPods, Smartphones, iPads, Internet-TV, digital media-archives mean a radical change to the old-established role of TV as a mass medium: Today viewers are able to decide where and when they want to watch something.It is even possible to watch different programs at the same time.
Do these changes imply the "death" of television or does it succeed in reinventing itself?

Referring to normal TV-daily routine the three institutions work together on an eight-hour TV-program, that can be seen not only inside of these institutions but additionally in public spaces like waiting-zones or coffee shops.
A special edition of the French magazine »Multitudes« dealing with the subject »Art/TV-Clash« comes along with the project and will be released in three languages for the first time on this occasion.
