civic tv: alternative visions of the urban experience

Civic TV receives voices from individuals and groups with alternative visions of the urban experience which desperately need to be amplified and broadcasted in Rotterdam. On November 22, the first episode of Civic TV will showcase subjective/subversive strategies which struggle with indoctrinated notions of the urban experience and question the authorities regulating the physical and mental environment. Through presentation, performance and interventions in the city, Civic TV is kaleidoscopic channelling of stories from diverse participants from inside and outside Rotterdam whose instigations atomize the monodimensional vision of civic normality.

CIVIC TV will be a high summit of cultural engineers, anarchitects, urban explorers, peripatic hedonists, squatters, graffiti aficionados, street-artists, generative psychogeographers, space hijackers, folly-builders, invisible city excavators, collaborative mapping gurus and transdimensional tourists for the years to come. Approaches to understand, use & criticise the urban environment and how these practices are sustained. CIVIC TV will be a unique opportunity for those interested in alternative mental and spatial engineering to meet.

The sublime emotion to explore the world , not as a tourist, but as a traveller willing to give up anything in order to find the North-West passage, is what the "Kop van Walk" experiment will try to find in the surroundings of the Poortgebouw.This walk is the outdoor event during CIVIC TV. The psychogeographical experience of the desire to explore, as suggested by the buildings, the bridges, the water, etc will be mapped with PML (Psychogeographical Markup Language).

CIVIC TV is organised by WHY & socialfiction.org. >from *CIVIC TV*. November 22, 2003. via joan
