As lockdowns set in all across Europe and all over the world in 2020, the 53rd festival edition of steirischer herbst turned into a semi-fictitious media company called Paranoia TV. The festival’s site and its accompanying app featured newly commissioned works by artists, including feature films, binge-worthy serial formats, and online discussions galore. Assuming the role of a broadcaster did not just involve moving to the virtual, however. From its real-life headquarters in the center of Graz, Paranoia TV employed guerrilla tactics such as direct delivery, invading newspaper pages, accidental meetings in supermarkets, hospitals, bookstores, and the streets of the city. Richly illustrated with color images, the Paranoia TV catalogue documents the films, series, performances, interventions, give-aways, and online games of the festival, expanding on all the on- and offline content with additional texts by participating artists. Together, they flesh out television’s celebration of reality as well as that reality’s complete absence as the next platform contemporary art can critically embrace.
