Auto Italia LIVE at the ICA
Live TV episode produced by artists and broadcast online.
Broadcast live at 7pm 9th June 2012
Auto Italia South East presents Auto Italia LIVE, an artist-run Live TV show performed before a studio audience and broadcast live over the internet. Working in collaboration with Auto Italia, artists will develop new work for this one-off episode, engaging directly with the format of Live Television.
Featuring a full camera crew, lighting technicians, directors, performers, script writers, production designers and set builders, artists will engage with all aspects of Live TV production.
Auto Italia LIVE is engaging directly in contemporary broadcast culture and how physical communities use the Internet to distribute ideas and also as a space for new work. Reflecting on the opportunities this opens up to artists, the episode will engage with the formal techniques of Live TV – its camera moves, soundtrack, catch phrases and live-editing – in order to create a new space and to critically engage with what it means to be making Live TV now.
Focusing specifically on Live TV and its mechanisms, this episode will explore and exploit the idiosyncrasies of this format, its potential and its language. Working within the constraints and limitations of Live TV, the episode will create a televisual space completely removed from the ICA Theatre it physically inhabits and will explore the possibility for TV to create new territories and realities in which to make work. Auto Italia LIVE aims to create its own context and be a proposal for how artists can produce live broadcast work in collaboration. The episode will be a unique place for artists to create their collectve context and distribute their work.
