IMPAKT TV episode #24: Saturday 18:45

With Mike Hoolboom, Shantel Gabriel Bugs and Liliana Zeic

6 November 2021
18:45 — 19:30

Location: IMPAKT TV from Koepelzaal

This IMPAKT TV episode follows the screening programme Brief Encounters, Long Farewell. We will show a conversation with Mike Hoolboom about his film 27 Thoughts About My Dad (2019). 

Afterwards we invited Shantel Gabriel Buggs to talk about research on how race and ethnicity, gender, and sexuality shape the ways that people build and negotiate intimate relationships. 

Lastly, our EMAP/EMARE 2021 resident artist Liliana Zeic will tell us about her research project Gently Running Downwards exploring the online rhetoric and reactions of the far-right in Poland. From an antisemitic conspiracy theory around “cultural marxism” and hateful anti-LGBTQA+ messaging, to organised ultra-Catholic campaigns in Poland, the project is an examination of the mechanisms of exclusion, structural violence and punishment that have emerged from far-right strategies of stigmatisation in recent years.

Gently Running Downwards is a partnership between IMPAKT [Centre for Media Culture] and transmediale. The work was produced within the EMAP-programme, co-funded by Creative Europe. EMAP is a residency programme that brings together 11 European Media Art organizations. The EMAP 2017-2021 programme offered yearly residencies to artists working in the fields of digital media.

This episode is hosted by Friso Wiersum.
