In The True Matías Show, it was fun to create my own narrative, somehow speaking from a parallel world. I mimicked that journalist but also a ‘modern’ right-wing politician, a bit like the ones we have everywhere now. I also impersonated an inventor of futuristic mobile apps. Together with the team I worked with, we tried to do something that felt like the ideal of public, democratic television – although we had to recur to sponsoring.
It was a twelve-hour-long cultural programme including conversations, artistic processes and even cooking. I think it was a bit silly but at the same time informative, political, and it had also some educational elements. It reminded me of approaches when I was growing up in Germany and there was only public television.
