Which content and people get represented in the media and what kind of standards does this set? These and other questions will be addressed by participants of the Forum Obdach Wien, street newspaper Augustin vendors and artists while they snatch the remote and zap through the TV programme. Existing formats will be appropriated, deconstructed and reinterpreted while utopian ideas take centre stage. SWEDED TV is a joint experiment in media deconstruction with the simplest of means, which does not end with visible representation but rethinks the film set as a free space for work and interaction through playful self-empowerment.

The face of poverty is just as diverse as the people selling Augustin on the streets of Vienna. What all vendors have in common is an individual history and a creativity when it comes to finding a solution for their current situation. This project by Forum Obdach Wien in cooperation with Tanzquartier Wien gives some of the newspaper vendors the opportunity to leave behind their daily lives and take on a different role. The act of creating something together intensifies the creative process, exploring all that is possible.
