        • You Must Eat This!
          • As part of PTV: Performance TV, Małpeczki (Little Monkeys) will present a bastardised version of a chef show with audience participation. Their shared dream about the birth of a goblin chef (Gabi Krajewski) will turn into a feast that provides an excuse for a journey through culinary worlds, scintillating with the different colours of class, context and form, with objects as the main protagonists. The dishes, or rather sculptures, will tell the story of their origin through the voice of a British aristocratic lady, an Uber driver and an Italian housewife accompanied by live Polish improvised jazz.

        • Dominika Olszowy PTV: Episodes 1, 2, 3.
          • The Dominika Olszowy television programme devised especially for PTV: Performance TV is a unique sociological record of Warsaws artistic community, in the artists idiosyncratic style. Popular TV formats have received a new lease of life thanks to their exceptional presenters: Wanda Sport, Laura Raflezja Arnolda and Kasandra. Olszowy has invited to her studio these familiar together with other less well-known figures from the local art scene, constructing unhurried programmes imbued with melancholy and humour in the spirit of Slow TV. Olszowys camera records the artists at work and asleep, making Karolina Plinta impersonate a visitor from the Orient, and for the first time ever shows the tragedy of the burnt Tenderness, such is the magic of the small screen. The artists project, which draws on many TV formats and styles, comprises three parts, although there have been rumours about hundreds of hours of footage that have not found their way into the official selection.
          • Episodes are available on special YouTube channel.

      • East London Cable
        • Reality Forum encounter II
          • Reality Forum is where reality TV meets its distant cousinperformance. Organized by East London Cable, it is an irregular and informal screening and discussion group whose aim is to consider the genre that has come to be known as ‘unscripted television through an artistic and critical lens. Beginning in September, throughout the 3 sessions we will move from the classics like This American Life, The Real World, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, through niche series like Connected, The Prancing Elites Project or Terrace House to the Polish original and franchise gems like Ballada o lekkim zabarwieniu erotycznym, Amazonki or Ex na plaży. Completing the selection with the artist works that use reality TV tactics and with anecdotes, spin-offs and behind-the-scenes picks we will try to both contextualise reality TV as a form of modern performance art and problematise it as a mode of labour and representation. We invite anyone with an interest in reality TVfans, actors, artists or criticsto join.
