A 24-hour global video art stream on air on ikonoTV. Art Speaks Out will present videos by international contemporary artists, focusing on nature preservation and calling for action.
Climate change is not a purely political issue; nor is it limited to the COP21 conference in Paris.
It is above all a human issue, one that connects us all, everywhere in the world.
At ikonoTV — the only broadcaster in the world to showcase art and only art 24/7 — we believe that art can give a new and powerful voice to the pressing concerns of global warming and man-made natural disaster, and that we can use art’s emotional appeal intelligently to convey the urgency of these issues in a deeper, more immediate way.
Convinced of that, we have invited artists to join forces and to put together a 24-hour playlist of contemporary video works based on environmental themes, free of any additional commentary. Because these concerns affect us all, and because art’s language is universal, artists are probably best equipped to enlighten and to touch us. This is why we present these issues from an artist’s point of view — to implement art’s power to speak out on this serious matter and appeal directly to human feeling.
Join Art Speaks Out on our internet stream, satellite tv channels and smart tv application. More information on www.ikono.tv
