International gathering of ideas for culture, art, and technology

The MUTEK Forum is an international gathering that brings together artists and technology professionals to explore our technological futures and the role of digital creativity within them. Seeking to expand our collective imaginaries, interactive keynotes, project presentations, panels, exhibitions, demonstrations, labs, and workshops delve into the transformative impact of emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, XR and web3. Through its discussions, the Forum critically examines the role of sustainability, accessibility, decolonization, diversity and inclusion within digital culture.

The MUTEK Forum attracts hundreds of artists, industry professionals, creative studios, technology companies, and cultural institutions. Previous speakers include multimedia artist Refik Anadol, Director of the AI Now Institute Dr. Sarah Myers West, award-winning author, sociologist, and professor Ruha Benjamin, media theorist Douglas Rushkoff, tech philosopher Benjamin Bratton and architect and creative technologist Behnaz Farahi.

In 2023, the MUTEK Forum. was awarded the 2023 Vivats Grand Prize as an industry-leader in sustainability measures.

The MUTEK Forum will be back for a 10th edition in 2024. Stay tuned for further announcements!
