Within one of the most challenging years in the history of the Festival, working almost to the limit and with reduced resources, MUTEK MX celebrated an Edition 17 in a hybrid, special and collaborative format; a unique exercise that, through collective effort, consolidated the importance of forming networks around digital art. The convergence of the 2 artistic communities of Mexico and Japan, in their desire to explore new frontiers that transcend physical limitations and social isolation, brought together artists, innovators and technological visionaries for 5 consecutive days in 3 virtual stages, a gallery interactive, a series of lectures, talks and master classes in Digi Lab format, and a listening room with continuous selections from the sound archives of the MUTEK network.

The central Mexican-Japanese programming was extended through the MUTEK Connect series, which provided a platform for collaborations with MUTEK's global branches and our international partners from Insomnia & Ekko Festival in Norway, the Club to Club festival in Italy and the B39 / PRECTXE festival in South Korea. In summary, more than 8,500 users on virtual.mutek.org during 5 days of premieres and 15 days of replays; 77 artists from 16 countries and nearly 114,500 views of all content deployed from December 9 to January 1.

We sincerely thank all the artists and virtual assistants who accompanied us in this historic edition, undoubtedly a challenge that ventured us to overcome the adversities of an extremely complicated year for the industry and that prompted us to write the future of our network, a future based on collaboration and the infinite possibilities of technology.

A special thanks to all the cities that are part of our network, El Foro, Surface, Intus, #mxvrhub, AltspaceVR, Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, Folklore, AKFN, Timecode, Secretaría de Cultura y Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores.
