What we do
IMPAKT presents critical and creative views on contemporary media culture and on innovative audio-visual arts in an interdisciplinary context.
A brief introduction to who we are: IMPAKT is a media arts organization based in Utrecht and founded in 1988. We present critical and creative views on contemporary media culture and arts, in an interdisciplinary context. Our aim is to identify emerging paradigms in transglobal culture, by focusing on the relationship between society, media, technology and arts. We examine issues around society, digital culture, and media from various angles and within a range of disciplines in the arts, academia, and technology.
We organise activities throughout the year at our venue at Lange Nieuwstraat 4, including IMPAKT Works, a residency programme, and IMPAKT Events, a regular series of presentations and screenings centering on a given theme, movement, or artist. The IMPAKT Channel is a platform where art projects made for the internet are presented, along with curated programmes featuring film and video art. Last but not least, the IMPAKT Archive works on digitising IMPAKT’s screening history back to 1988, when the first IMPAKT Festival was organised. Feel free to have a look.
Our main project is the annual IMPAKT Festival, a five-day multimedia event that includes exhibitions, film screenings, lectures, panels, performances, presentations, and artist talks at locations in Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The IMPAKT Festival 2019 took place from 30 October until 3 November. The festival exhibition “The Sound of One Computer Thinking” was on display from 30 October to 22 December.
