Symposium IMPACT12

This is the eighth year in which the interdisciplinary symposium IMPACT has invited artists, practitioners, theoreticians and s, new media and film to engage critically with the artistic strategies and working methods of progressive guest artists, to test their approaches in practice and to question them with reference to their own background.

In this 8th edition, IMPACT12: Undercover presents three artistic
positions that demonstrate, in the most varied of ways, a human presence
in fashion, music, film, sculpture and performance by revealing a real and
concrete practise. Playfully they wander through the genres, using
sophisticatedly constructed, maximally reduced and excessively euphoric

Symposium fee: 100 € which includes the 3­ day­ symposium, 1 performance, 1 lecture presentation and 7 meals.
With the support of the Kunststiftung NRW, there are seven scholarships
available for IMPACT12 covering the symposium fee and hotel costs.
