This is the seventh year in which the interdisciplinary symposium IMPACT has invited artists, practitioners, theoreticians and advanced students in the fields of dance, theatre, performance, visual arts, 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 7th edition, IMPACT11 presents three artistic perspectives that generate humorous, playful and paradoxical possibilities of interacting and dealing with urban, social and political phenomenon using the artistic tools available to them. The artist La Ribot (ES/CH) develops lively and pernicious dialogues between object and body, image and action at the boundary between performance art and video art. The films of video artist Phil Collins (GB/DE) move along the interface between documentation and staging and play expertly with society’s desires: whether through dance-marathons in Ramallah or how fantasies are sold by a TV shopping channel. Via its virtual “chat-theatre,” the architecture collective m7red (AR) brings together experts and lay people from across the globe to discuss ecological and political questions, and develops games as part of preparing for floods and other urban catastrophe scenarios.

During the symposium PACT Zollverein will present two lecture performances by m7red and Phil Collins on Thursday, 27th October, and the performance “llámame mariachi” by La Ribot on Saturday, 29th October.

IMPACT11 offers a concentrated and motivational space for exchange, action and reflection that goes beyond one’s own usual boundaries. The daily schedule is decided by the artists themselves and will be influenced by the participants.

The application form and further information about the guest artists and programme is available under:
