IMPAKT FESTIVAL 2000
Installations, Music, Film and Video Art, New Media and Performances
An international platform for new audiovisual art, the IMPAKT Festival returns for its 11th edition.This year, two current themes will receive special attention: in the Premate program, the representation of the child in both society as well as in art will be illuminated from various disciplines, while Glitch is a program about the deliberate use of malfunctioning equipment in electronic music and video art.
While not exactly a thematic program, Partners is a working process that runs through the festival in which artists create a work in a dialogue with people from outside the art world, ranging from a bouncer to an astronomer. In the Panorama program, a broad overview will be presented of the most strong-willed and exciting audiovisual productions from the past year.
About 125 videos, websites, installations, films, performances, CD-Roms and concerts will be on display from approximately 30 different countries around the world. Finally, interviews and discussions will be held every day in the couch.club , where artists will introduce their work.
