The Curse of Smooth Operations
This year the festival exhibition will be on show at two locations: IMPAKT [Centre for Media Culture] (Lange Nieuwstraat 4) and the vacant retail shop at the Steenweg 26.
The Curse of Smooth Operations at IMPAKT [Centre for Media Culture]
With artworks by Danica Dakić, Zachary Formwalt, Sasha Litvintseva & Beny Wagner and Benedikt Terwiel.
The artworks featured as part of the festival exhibition at the IMPAKT [Centre for Media Culture], do not deal with the beauty of error, but with the horror of things working perfectly well. They do not linger on the subversive potential of tiny bugs, but focus on the oppressiveness of a totalising system that has been immunised against malfunction and able to perpetuate itself ad infinitum.
The Curse of Smooth Operations at Steenweg 26
With artworks by Marc Bauer, Anita Di Bianco and Vincent Graf.
This second exhibition of The Curse of Smooth Operations brings Anita Di Bianco’s installation Corrections and Clarifications, specially commissioned for the IMPAKT Festival 2022, in dialogue with a wall drawing by Marc Bauer created on-site for The Curse of Smooth Operations and a drawn animation film by Vincent Graf.
