We deal with questions about society, digital culture and media from different angles and disciplines such as arts, academia and technology. Or, to be a bit more specific: Impakt presents critical and creative views on contemporary media culture and innovative audiovisual arts in an interdisciplinary context are presented in events, film programs and talks. Founded as a festival for audiovisual arts in 1988, Impakt organises the annual Impakt Festival, this year taking place from 28 October- 1 November 2015 and themed A WORLD WELL DOCUMENTED (THE FUTURE OF HISTORY): a five-day multi media festival with exhibitions, lectures and screenings at different locations in the city of Utrecht (NL).
Next to this, Impakt runs a year-round operation with a residency programme Impakt Works and regular Impakt Events: short projects or screenings centering a certain theme, movement, or artist. We also launch annual net art projects on our web gallery and are in the process of digitising Impakt’s screening history since 1988 on our Impakt Online Channel.
