Good tv activities 2004 – 2012 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 fnancial 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-proft 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.

Good TV broadcasted work by: Alexander Vaindorf, Annette Krauss, Carl Michael Lundberg, Cecilia Parsberg, Cesar Tafoya, Charlotte Åberg, Davide Grassi, Denis Romanovski, Hala el Koussy, Hito Steyerl, International Festival Television Network, Jesper Nordahl, Johan Böhm, Johan Holtzberg/Fredrik Wiklund, Kajsa Dahlberg, Karl Holmqvist, Katya Sander, Lara Baladi, Latifa Echakhch, League of Noble Peers, Magnus Bärtås, Matti Kallionen, Marcelo Esposito, Markus Mårtensson, Michele Masucci, Unstable Society of Mobile Production, Oliver Ressler, Pablo Casacuberta, Petra Bauer, Tobias Bernstrup, Saralunden, Valeria Montti- Colque
