Rapid societal changes, new artistic ideas, current political events, new ways of consuming media and art. Being an artistic curator means you have to constantly keep one ear to the ground. But how do we as a festival relate to the world around us? How much of a mirror do we hold up to reflect society at large, and how much do we function as pure escapism? What do we present and why?

Programming a festival like the GAS festival means presenting seemingly disparate artistic expressions under one umbrella. It requires a curious and perhaps sometimes daring audience and, from a curatorial perspective, it means taking risks. So what is it that makes us keep coming back to the festival format? And what does it really mean to run an art festival today?
