sunday matinees offers a multidisciplinary online platform for those -artist, writers, poets, journalists, filmmakers, etc- who would like to share their work through a livestream channel. the performances take place both at the gallery space or elsewhere in the world (mostly the latter). all the content is announced on social media platforms and is widely documented, forming an archive that comes together in blog http://www.sundaymatinees.tumblr.com. with sunday matinees i want to make use of the world wide wed, user & low tech and live-streaming possibilities as a prolongation of the gallery space in order to bring together a varied number of projects from all over the world. the gallery space is important both physically and as online channel (especially witzenhausen gallery which has always been open to new forms of art and distribution). moreover, i want to communicate with an audience who is not physically at the gallery but who can spend a sunday afternoon with us, not only as onlooker but also as an active spectator who can communicate with us through the livestream.com chat. this form of online programming and information sharing through the social media is the seed of future forms of television. with the term “matinee” i refer to the literal meaning of the term: a musical or dramatic performance or social or public event held in the daytime and especially the afternoon.
