The IMPAKT Festival 2023: Our Terms, Our Conditions continues the discussions we started three years ago with the first edition of CODE: Reclaiming Digital Agency. CODE stands for a code of ethics we want to discuss: ethical and legal standards to which governments and technology companies need to adhere.
CODE is an annual, six-month co-creation project that brings together artists and non-artists from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and other countries. CODE supports them over the entire project in a process of collaborative inspiration, development and production. Our partners for CODE are Werktank (BE), PrivacySalon (BE), School of Machines (DE) and transmediale (DE). Together, we have supported over 70 participants who worked in small groups. They have produced more than 15 artworks, installations, performances, plug-ins, interventions and other projects. The CODE exhibition at the IMPAKT Festival 2023 presents a selection of works from the first three years of CODE projects.
NB: Unfortunately, we have had to move the Reclaiming Digital Agency exhibition because asbestos was recently found in the original Fotodok/Casco location. The works are now on display at IMPAKT [Center for Media Culture]. Two of the works from Reclaiming Digital Agency can be seen in the ground floor exhibition space, in the Don’t Be Evil exhibition. The other works of Reclaiming Digital agency can be seen in the corridor on the first floor. Some works are presented in an adapted form.
