TV Free Europe – coming late!
Our TV IN PROGRESS has been launched!
A TV in progress, with plenty of absurdity and inspiration, and lots of fishes for a meditation break.
If you are bored of livestreamings, tired of online cultural products and all the framed information,
We planned it to be a series of LIVE EVENTS, but now we decided to put it all back into the box of a classical TV. Later we will break out of it again!
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING – Mari & Marie’s Early Night Show
Mari @ Marie’s Early Night Show @TRIP Ship Budapest | 5 October, 2019
The show happened in the context of our European Democracy Network and was co-organised with KÖME – Kulturális Örökség Menedzserek Egyesülete
One of the main demands of active citizens in Central and Eastern Europe in the late 80s was the right for information and a democratic public sphere. In 2019 we face a narrowing public sphere with increasing restrictions on the freedom of press, assembly and expression in many European countries and beyond. More and more moments emerge reminiscent of the “velvet prison” as writer, politician and human rights advocate Miklós Haraszti called the late Kádár regime.
Greetings from the future of 1989, feel the wind of CHANGE!
Hungarian Mari and East-German refugee Marie, two young journalists, are time travelling from 1989 to 2019 to host today’s talk show. Join them for an interactive conversation with performative elements around shrinking civic spaces and civic actors’ legitimacy, reputation and freedom fundamentally being challenged. Together, we want to explore how civic spaces are being restricted in European and neighbouring countries; what are the similarities and differences across Europe; how we as civil society can stand in solidarity with each other and learn from each others‘ reactions and actions against these threatening tendencies in our specific local contexts.
TV Free Europe soon starts!
We are happy to launch our collaborative TV Free Europe soon!
30 years after Radio Free Europe influenced and transmitted the Fall of the Iron Curtain, with partners from 5 countries we explore buried hopes and possibilities of freedom of speech today. TV Free Europe is a series of practical research formats and theatrical late night shows. Throughout the project a growing archive is being built up, out of personal accounts, objects, stories and misteries.
Partners to TV Free Europe: KÖME- Association of Cultural Heritage Managers, University of Nova Gorica (SLO), Offenes Haus Oberwart (AT), UT Connewitz (DE), Festival Tårnby Torv (DK), Pneuma Vizuál and other local collaborators
The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, Allianz Kulturstiftung and the U.S. Embassy of Budapest
TV Free Europe is looking for a project assistant!

Mari & Marie go hygge – Tårnby Torv Festival
Duty free zone – early evening show + party by Pneuma Szöv. ft. Marie & Mari, Dr. Purple and local guests
19 November, 7 pm @Tårnby Torv Festival, Denmark
Where birds and planes meet, between Amager Fælled and Kastrup Airport, Mari & Marie look for freedom and flights. Mari & Marie started their entertainment program in the streets of Budapest, checking out what the future could look like. As time travellers they bounce between the past and the coming, always stumbling over the potentials of 1989. Is freedom outdated?
Tårnby Torv Festival is an attempt to maintain the connection between performance art and its most important players: the citizens right around the corner. In the festival cooperate artists from abroad, Danmark and citizens from Tårnby.
The festival is initiated by Tårnby inhabitant and performance artist Andreas Liebmann and takes place in, and around, a space on the 1st floor in Tårnby Torv Center.
