Guy Sherwin

A key figure in British avant-garde cinema, Guy Sherwin pushes the limits of cinema with his films, installation works and performances, in which he explores film’s fundamental properties: light and time. Since the 1970s he has been working on a series of studies on the illusion of movement and stasis experienced during train travel. For Impakt, he will present a selection of his “train films” in the form of an expanded film performance.

Dirk de Bruyn + Joel Stern

In his work, filmmaker and media artist Dirk de Bruyn deals with the disorientating and traumatic experience of media-saturated environments. His performance ‘LanterNfanten’ for three projectors creates an absorbing space where time is disturbed and compressed as a kind of personal research on bodily trauma and cultural displacement. It will be accompanied by a live soundtrack from composer Joel Stern, merging music concrète, art brut and noise.

Core of the Coalman

Core of the Coalman is one of the alter egos of composer and visual artist Jorge Boehringer, a project in the musical no man’s land between power electronics, noise and contemporary classical music. With violin, his voice and electronics he builds sonic architectures hovering on the edge between chaos and order.

Bruce McClure

A film projector is not only a source of light but also of sound. Nobody understands this better than Bruce McClure who with his immersive performances for multiple projectors creates a pure sensory game of pulsating rhythms and shadows, well beyond the borders of cinematographic time and space. For Impakt he has prepared a unique two-hour performance, which is sure to provide a hypnotic and overwhelming experience.
