UKRAiNATV is an experimental, collective, and cross-sectoral project in the field of media culture. It deals with new relational strategies and new HYBRiD production forms in the field of hybrid presence. It’s an Internet TV station specialised in building live audiovisual bridges, a multi-channel streaming hub, a recording studio, and glocal network, all at once. And last but not least a group of people…

UKRAiNATV is an open collective, a crew of artists, media freaks, activists, researchers, musicians, and DJs from Ukraine, Poland, Belarus, Italy, and multiple other countries – persons in need, refugees, nomadic artists, techno freaks, expats and migrants that do not feel safe to express themselves freely in their own country or states (taking this term in all meanings) and who are finding new opportunities in these experimental frames.

UKRAiNATV is experimenting with tactical media and realities, mixing used and brand-new equipment and concepts, creating one-off blends of the real and the virtual, online and offline. It is a glocal, hybrid, and collective melting pot of people, machines, ideas, identities, and signals that mix in real-time and send all around the world from UKRAiNATV’s base at #StreamArtStudio, an interactive TELEViSION projected for the future.

UKRAiNATV operates in the shadow of war and geopolitical tensions. But what it tries to achieve is to build up solidarity, empathetic, and safe space-time for endangered minorities, avatars, and colorful freaks from the intergalactic glocality. UKRAiNATV is here – on the Internet – and here – in Krakow, Poland, Central Europe – in the hot spot of geopolitical tensions between West and East, the Nord and the South – mixing presence, present, past & future – private and intimate testimonials and social, political and cultural contexts.

UKRAiNATV is also a hub for transitions – transnational, transmedial, transdisciplinary and transcultural, off-line and online, connections with others. UKRAiNATV builds up media bridges, tests, and invents tools for hybrid togetherness. UKRAiNATV links its activities with parallel practices all around the world collaborating with people, collectives, and institutions, for example in Kyiv, Amsterdam, Vancouver, Milano, Warsawa, Nancy, and many, many other cities.

UKRAiNATV was born a few days after the 24th of February 2022, at the start of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, when the full-scale war began. It has started its daily activity – production of the footage testimonies of that time, connecting people in Ukraine, Krakow, and all around the world, doing weekly live streams, and organizing basic support during this humanitarian crisis.

And lastly, UKRAiNATV is also fragile and unstable, just like our times are. It is an artistic, social, political, and research-based project in one. It is arguably one of the poorest television networks in the world – and among the most experimental ones.
