IMPAKT FESTIVAL 2021
The IMPAKT Festival 2021 will be dedicated to Modern Love (or Love in the Age of Cold Intimacies). Through a rich programme of talks, panels, screenings, performances and an exhibition, we explore the state of love and romantic relations in the age of the Internet, social media, neo-liberal capital, and globalisation.
It probes the societal patterns and challenges as well as possibilities that the Internet and social media – and now the Covid-19 pandemic – present to our intimate relationships. Is there a way out of the ‘cold intimacies’ brought by the digital revolution?
We are honored to announce that this edition of the festival is co-curated by Katerina Gregos, the newly appointed artistic director of the EMST – the Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens. Katerina Gregos is a writer and curator who has worked as a curator at a number of major international biennials and organisations, including the 1st Riga Biennial and the critically acclaimed exhibition for the Danish Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennial. Gregos is also one of the mentors at IMPAKT’s Full Spectrum Curatorship Programme, which just kicked-off its second edition.
