Launched by two German artists, the film and video art TV channel Souvenirs From Earth is inviting artists and filmmakers to use the channel in order to promote their works. First presented as a concept at London’s ICA in 1998 and the Venice Biennale in 1999, it took seven years to go on air. It is currently expanding to France.
