The professional gathering of MUTEK is back for its 9th edition
The 9th edition of MUTEK Forum, the forward-thinking gathering for artists and digital creativity professionals, will take place in Montréal from Tuesday 22 August to Friday 25 August 2023 at the state-of-the-art performance center The 7 Fingers.
In keeping with its critical investigations into the ethical, ecological, and political issues surrounding advanced technology through artistic practice and culture, the Forum dives ever deeper into extended reality (XR), artificial intelligence (AI), and questions of sustainability and accessibility in the music and digital creative industries. These explorations are underlined by self-reflexively questioning the role of festivals in society through the activities of MUTEK’s Future Festivals initiative. Bringing together partners from Canada and abroad ー ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, New Now Festival, Send + Receive Festival, New Forms Festival, Festival Mois Multi and HOLO ー the initiative presents a two-year long series of collective experimental labs that prototype the future of digital art events.
The MUTEK Market will return as the convergence point for our international network of artists and industry professionals, taking place in-person in Montréal and worldwide online. A special spotlight will be put on Canadian and Québec digital creatives as part of its artistic showcase, the Market Selection.
Pro Passports are now available at the special price of 150$ CAD (taxes and fees included) for a limited time.
