The next IHME Festival will be held in spring 2018. The 2018 programme will be posted on this site.

The programme of talks adds exciting new dimensions to each IHME Project. The artists talk about the starting points for their artworks, and the audience can share their own experiences of contemporary art in public space. The programme also raises current themes about society and the cultural scene. Admission to all events is free.

Speakers who have contributed to the programme include: Co-Director of Artangel James Lingwood; Professor at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago Mary Jane Jacob; Situations Director Claire Doherty; Creative Time’s Artistic Director Nato Thompson; Director of Tensta Konsthall, curator Maria Lind; Curators Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev and Akiko Miki; sociologist Nirmal Puwar, critic and writer, Professor of Art and Theory at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts Jan Verwoert; and the former Director of Tate Modern and the current Director of Berlin’s Volksbühne Chris Dercon.
