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.
