• Impakt Channel: Content with Context

    YouTube might be an incredible tool when it comes to reaching worldwide audiences but when it comes to creating context it’s performing poor to say the least. Information on basic facts is often lacking and background information, curatorial statements and critics’ interpretations are a rarity. Can YouTube be used as a tool that not only gives visibility but also insight and reflection? Or is it better to move away from this hype dominated environment and establish new platforms that are dedicated to quality? And how to generate traffic to these platforms?

    With the Impakt Channel, the Impakt Festival Utrecht is researching these questions and experiments with formats to find the best way to make high quality video content available to viewers around the globe.

    • History is yours - Anne Virgin 911The Right To Know (And Copy) – Online Exhibition for Impakt Net Art 2011

      Impakt NET ART: ONLINE EXHIBITION formerly know as Impakt Online – Like advocates of radical transparency, this year’s Impakt Net Art artists have not only chosen to exercise their right to know, but also to share and copy the acquired content. Unveiling the legal labyrinth of The Cloud, collecting and screening banned videos, and appropriating the templates and icons that make up our modern world, the online exhibition explores the impossibility of secrecy and the limits to openness. With: Metahaven, Dagan Cohen and Hendrik Jan Grievink & Coralie Vogelaar.
