Beyond the headlines of art, tech and media

IMPAKT TV is a series of monthly online events in which we reflect on the most striking events in art, technology and media of the past weeks. Every first Thursday of the month, together with an artist, journalist, researcher or writer we discuss their work, latest news and must-see exhibitions and events.

We will reflect on IMPAKT’s signature themes such as the complexity of our data driven world, our rights as digital citizens, how power structures are reflected in media and technology, conspiracy theories, meme culture, new approaches to climate change, and much more. With IMPAKT TV we take these discussions out of their theoretical comfort-zone and relate them directly to what we see around us, what we read in the news and scroll through on Instagram.

In our first IMPAKT TV season in 2021 we welcomed artists Simon Denny and Harm van den Dorpel, researcher Inte Gloerich (Utrecht University / Institute of Network Cultures), Florian Cramer (Willem de Kooning Academy), journalist Laudy van den Heuvel (De Groene Amsterdammer), professor Marc Schuilenburg (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg, Wilbert Mutsaers (head of Spotify Benelux), researcher Christine Bauer (Utrecht University) and writer Erik Davis (author of High Weirdness: Drugs, Esoterica, and Visionary Experience in the Seventies at MIT Press).
