Public Service Media 2.0 Lab

The Public Service Media 2.0 Lab researched how the constitutional Public Service Media mandate is changing in the digital age. “Grundversorgung” – the provision of essential, universally available audio-visual information, education and entertainment – stands at a crossroads between broadcasting and Internet, public and private organization, cultural and economic good, federal, national and European regulation, public sphere and echo chamber and between the generations and their media cultures. The project‘s hypothesis was that Public Service Media need to follow the digital generation into the internet in order to continue to fulfil its functions for society.
