More than 5000 people were thrilled with our 13th edition of the event. Thanks!
Emotions, catharsis, community, and many more terms that we could use to describe everything we experienced just a few weeks ago. These images will remind you of it.
The 13th edition of the MUTEK Barcelona Festival was held from 7 to 13 March with an innovative programme of world premieres and debuts in the city of national and international artists, as well as a wide representation of new local talents, whose artistic proposals stand out for combining digital creativity, music and technology. More than 5000 people enjoyed them.
In this edition, the festival included 50 artists of 15 nationalities, who made up an extensive programme of live lives, shows A/V and installations during 13 events in 10 different locations: Antiga Fàbrica Estrella Damm, Nista/Astin, Institut Français, Phonos/UPF, Roca Barcelona Gallery, Hangar, LAUT, SAE, SVD and Casa Bonay.
Coinciding this 2022 with the "25th anniversary of the signing of the Cooperation Agreement between Québec and Catalonia", MUTEKES received a delegation of Québec artists and professionals, highlighting and strengthening the bonds of friendship and cooperation between the two territories. Since 1983, they have maintained bilateral relations in strategic areas of interest concerning language policies, the protection of language, cultural diversity and education.
