ikono.tv stands for the idea of making the visual arts accessible to the public and caters to the innovative presentation of pieces from artists and cultural institutions. Collaborating with professional art historians, creative producers, artists, and editors, ikono.tv presents a wide field of cultural heritage from antiquity through the renaissance and modern to the contemporary, giving the audience a wide access to paintings, videos, architecture and design. The central element of ikono.tv's philosophy is a pure visual experience of art, abstaining from commentary and additional audio during broadcast. Visual art has a language of it's own. It inspires, causes controversies, creates cultural exchange and crosses all borders. ikonoMenasa is currently available via satellite transmission in an HD-TV channel, the Internet, on mobile devices through our online shop, and the in-flight entertainment of Air France.
