Impakt presents critical and creative views on contemporary media culture and on innovative audio-visual arts in an interdisciplinary context.
We examine issues around society, digital culture, and media from various angles and within a range of disciplines in the arts, academia, and technology.
Our main project is the annual Impakt Festival, a five-day multimedia event that includes exhibitions, film screenings, lectures, panels, performances, presentations, and artists’ talks at locations in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The 2017 festival will take place from 25 until 29 October and its theme will be Haunted Machines, Wicked Problems. Curators Natalie Kane and Tobias Revell will map the relationship between technology, mythology, and magic.
