In the interactions between humans, animals, plants, and things, in ecosystems and in the technosphere, pervasive patterns of perception are at work. What powerful phenomena, forces, connections and exchange relations remain hidden or obscured as a result? What methods, tools, strategies, or systems are required to reevaluate these connections and foster productive relationships? Which ingrained patterns need to be disrupted? 

With the call for proposals, we welcome suggestions, ideas and possibilities for action arising from artistic, social, physical, technological, and ecological practices, whether actual or speculative, that engage with various forms of appreciating complex processes and making them visible.

The four-day symposium (Nov 08 – 11, 2023) is based on the selected contributions and is complemented by keynote lectures, workshops and artistic interventions. To participate, you can submit your own contribution through the call for proposals, which will be shared and discussed with other international experts during IMPACT23’s assembly (remuneration of 250 EUR). Travel costs will be covered and local accommodation will be provided.
