VernissageTV expands network of correspondents

Backed by the continuous growth in audience, distribution channels, and sponsors, Art TV pioneer VernissageTV adds new correspondents and places to its lineup. Additional correspondents in Poland, Switzerland, Mexico and Germany will open new windows to the art world.

VernissageTV is the Internet’s unique TV art project, which covers exhibitions and events in the fields of contemporary art, design and architecture. The objective is to give an authentic insight into the world of art by the means of film and video. VernissageTV materializes as video podcast / Internet TV channel / video archive. VernissageTV videocasts three series: The “No Comment” section, the interviews with the protagonists of the art world; and the “r3” series with re-mastered VernissageTV Classics. VernissageTV is widely distributed via its website and Internet TV networks. Founded in September 2005 VernissageTV is growing steadily. Until now VernissageTV produced, published and archived over 1500 episodes.
