iMAL is an art centre for digital cultures and technology, located in the centre of Brussels. It combines the functions of a Contemporary Art Center and a Media Lab and is unique in its kind in Belgium. The non-profit organisation was created in Brussels in 1999, with the objective to support artistic practices around the creative and critical use of technology.
iMAL is a space for artistic practices around the creative and critical use of new technologies. iMAL connects a community of artists, thinkers, makers and citizens from Belgium and abroad and offers an infrastructure to support a programme focussing on research, production and presentation.
By following artistic practice in all its phases and facets, iMAL is directly connected to the latest artistic practices, social trends and technological developments. As a workshop, laboratory and presentation platform at the intersection of art, technology, science and society, it occupies a unique position by connecting contemporary art production with other sectors – locally, nationally and internationally.
iMAL uses its unique position as a platform to connect other artists’ initiatives, workshops and festivals with a focus on art, science and technology and sees it as its mission to translate these activities into a visible and audience-friendly way, building a bridge between the professional field and a broader public.
