Impakt Festival 2010: Matrix City


Wednesday, October 13 2010

Utrecht, Netherlands

The 21st edition of the Impakt Festival will take place from 13 through to 17 October. In a city like Utrecht with a station area that is under firm reconstruction, we focus on the various different perceptions of what elements constitute a city and what a city should look like. With an exhibition in two shop premises in the Hoog Catharijne shopping centre, screenings of short films on a big Urban Screen at the Neude square and an audio walk exposing the hidden undercurrent of the city’s electromagnetic radiation, Impakt directly ventures out into the heart of the city. The film programme in ’t Hoogt, the conference in Studio T and the large variety of activities in Theater Kikker all show the urbanization process in all its aspects and extremes. So, put on your big-city face and submerge in the dilemma of the city.

Matrix City, the main program of the Impakt Festival 2010, is curated by STEALTH.unlimited (Ana Dzokic and Marc Neelen, Rotterdam/Belgrade) & Kristian Lukic (Novi Sad).
