The Impakt Festival 2016 takes place from 26 October- 30 October and is themed The Value of Authenticity in the Post-digital Age. A five-day multi media festival with exhibitions, lectures and screenings in the city of Utrecht (NL).
Authenticity is a variable and elusive concept that seems to be diminishing, and at the same time getting more significant than ever. How can we gain insight into this paradox? What is the value of authenticity? The curators of this year’s Impakt Festival, Barbara Cueto and Bas Hendrikx, investigate the way in which artists, designers and theorists use these new strategies in their work.
