iMAL, Center for Digital Cultures and Technology
iMAL, which stands for interactive Media Art Laboratory, is the city’s centre for new media and digital art. It was founded in 1999 and occupies a floor in an industrial building close to the canal. Its aim is to support artistic and creative practices that use computers, networks, telecommunications, and media. iMAL is also part of a European network. Besides exhibitions, iMAL also organises lectures, performances, concerts, and festivals.
