iMAL (interactive Media Art Laboratory) is an association founded in Brussels in 1999. Its objective is to encourage the process of creative appropriation of new technologies. In 2007, iMAL opened a new 700m² space dedicated to new forms of artistic expression, emergent cultural practices and industrial innovations that arise out of the convergence between information technology, telecommunications, networks, media and digital production processes. iMAL produces exhibitions, conferences and concerts. Within the framework of its Media Lab, it also enables artists to research, experiment, share and exchange knowledge and ideas with and about new technologies.
