Due to technological developments, it has become increasingly difficult to distinguish the fake from the real, and the natural from the made. In the run towards Impakt festival 2016 Authenticity? Impakt is hosting various events throughout which they explore the thematic approach of the festival. NNN director Koert van Mensvoort was invited together with NNN fellow Floris Kaayk to discuss authenticity and create a program around their most recent projects.
In an evening-filling program, the two artists welcome Peter-Paul Verbeek, professor Philosophy of Humanity and Technology at the University of Twente to introduce the topic, after which they will present their individual projects, to be concluded with a conversation among the speakers. From 3 PM and after the Impakt Event, artificial meat ice cream will be freely distributed from our Bistro in Vitro ice cream cart.
