Initiated by Anton Kats in collaboration with the Showroom and Fourth Feathers Community Centre FFTV (Fourth Feathers TV) is an open, community-based TV station inviting members and visitors of the Community Centre to join. The FFTV team interchanges and alternates the roles of camera operators, commentators, filmmakers, journalists and audience, and develops an evolving series of episodes around social and political issues. It transforms the space inside and outside of the community centre into an open TV studio and simultaneously an artistic and informal learning platform.
Since 2013 FFTV proposes a space to explore methods of co-research and artistic investigation. The liveness of the project carries a form of an open event, in which open studio work counters standardised relationships with media and suggests ways to approach local organisation forms practically.
