The Essential Guide to MUTEK MX Edition 18

M MX GUÍ A 1 09

On the verge of Edition 18, which feels more like the beginning of a new era, MUTEK MX reconfigures itself to generate experiences in which technology and innovation serve as tools for catharsis; to explore the brighter side that arises when mixing art and experimentation. With this Essential Guide, which will be constantly updated until the week of the festival, we invite you to delve into the activities of Edition 18 to make the most of the MUTEK experience.

After a long absence from face-to-face activities, the 18th Edition of MUTEK MX continues the relentless path of evolution and refinement of the festival. From November 21 to 27, new audiences and the community that the festival has cultivated and captivated over almost 20 years, will live the vertiginous series of experiences, reflections and sensations that MUTEK detonates.

Here everything you have to know.
