ARJON DUNNEWIND (Utrecht)
In 1985, at age of 17 Arjon Dunnewind moved from his hometown Ommen in the Netherlands to Utrecht to study at the HKU, the local Art Academy. During his study he developed an interest in film and video. In 1988 he was one of the initiators of the Impakt Festival, the Dutch festival specializing in cross-overs and innovation in audiovisual arts. The festival's interdisciplinary approach, in which film, video, new media, music and fine arts were combined, soon became popular and influential. From 1994 to 1997 he produced KabelKunst and Vizir, series of TV programs on video art and experimental film. From 1996 to 2000 he was an advisor to the Dutch Film Fund. From 1997 to 1999 he co-curated ”Oog in Al” a side show for innovative film, new media and visual arts within the Dutch Film Festival. In 1997 Dunnewind started the ”sub.club” series as an addition to the Impakt Festival. In a smaller and more concentrated format the ”sub.clubs” aim at presenting the same ideosyncratic visions on contemporary culture as promoted in the Impakt Festival. Arjon Dunnewind now is the director of the Impakt Festival. He is curating programs as a free-lancer for instance for Castello di Rivoli, Italy and the Museo de Bellas Artes de Buenos Aires in Argentina. He is a regular lecturer at Dutch Art Academies and jury member at festivals and concourses.
