Just a minimal space for fine art on public and private televisions has lead teachers and students of the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague (AVU) to found an independent Internet HDV television. Live archive contains mainly contributions from exhibition openings, interviews with artists, curators, records of workshops, competitions or conferences. Artyčok.TV is run by a civic society Artyčok.TV, o.s and by Digital Laboratory of AVU. Since its beginning in 2006, editorial team from Prague has been extended by regular contributors from university towns of the Czech Republic (Plzeň, Ústí nad Labem and Brno). Presentation and cooperation of local institutions contribute to closer development of study aims. At present there is also a regular acquisition of contributions from European centers such as Berlin, Bratislava or Budapest. Server transformation into Middle European format makes contributions more accessible in the scope of European area. The youngest section of domain, videoart, is the biggest archive of progressive Czech-Slovak audiovisual scene. Portal with its specific focus is the most watched information source for students of art, art theoreticians, gallery owners and collectors at the moment. At the time of dynamic development of IT technologies is direct confrontation via audiovisual records more than necessary. All programs are launched under a Creative Commons license.
