CONGLOMERATE is a collaborative Gesamtkunstwerk presented in the form of a television network.
The project is realized by a core team of five artists and filmmakers:
CONGLOMERATE acts as a producer of original programs, also inviting additional Berlin-based and international artists to realize their own segments, sets, commercials and specials for the network. Mixing diverse content ranging from melodrama, documentary, comedy, interview, music, and art into a unified body, new 30-minute Blocks composed of recurring shows and one-off segments are broadcast on the web, with new Blocks and Specials released throughout the year. All content is exclusively found here on www.conglomerate.tv
Headquartered at the Berlin project space Kinderhook & Caracas, CONGLOMERATE comprises their entire 2016 & 2017 program.
Block One comprises a myriad of new, original video content created by the core team and also features exclusive contributions from guest artists Keren Cytter and Jeremy Shaw as well as advertisements for Christine Hill’s Volksboutique, Constant Dullaart’s DullTech, and Repossession Services. Closing credits track by Novo Line.
Block Two premiered on August 30, 2016 at Moviemento Kino, Berlin, and subsequently online. It features guest contributions from Molly Lowe, Shana Moulton, Stephen G. Rhodes, Heatsick, The Institute for New Feeling and station IDs by Mario Campos.
