    Good TV was initiated by Juan Pedro Fabra Guemberena, Loulou Cherinet and Michele Masucci and started as a very simple idea; we wanted to show art on television and by doing so, defy the prevailing homogenous supremacy of commercial and state owned television networks. Our initial plan was to offer an open space on television more or less operating as a gallery to contributors from around the world.

    Good TV received financial support from KU(Royal Collage of Art) in 2004, since then our vision and possibilities as well as the interest from artists, media and our audience has grown enormously.

    Today Good TV is a registered non-profit organisation and member of the public access television network in Stockholm, Öppna Kanalen. We broadcasted regularly every Thursday and Sunday 22.00-22.30 between 2004 and 2007.
