Location: BAK, basis voor actuele kunst
The major part of films and videos from the festival can also be viewed individually at TV sets in the Mediatheque, which for this edition of Impakt is housed in the main room of BAK Center of Contemporary Art.
This year’s Mediatheque does not only comprise films and videos from the Impakt Festival 2008 but also holds the Impakt archives of the last twenty years allowing visitors to delve into the rich Impakt history. In addition to films featured in previous editions of the festival, you can find many VHS tapes and DVDs of key works from the history of film and video art, interesting video clips and cinematic works of visual artists. Next to works of geniuses that have gone down in history and artists that by now have become unaffordable, you can also find obscure under ground talent, big shots that have passed into oblivion and talented artists from previous editions Impakt still vouches for.
Please note, videos can only be viewed on presentation of a valid ID, so be sure to take this with you.
