This year, due to the ongoing global pandemic the Media Architecture Biennale had to be adapted and re-imagined in an online format for the first time. During the past few months, the MAB20 Organizing Committee has explored and experimented with multiple possibilities on how to best serve the worldwide MAB-Community and translate the atmosphere that we were planning to create here in Amsterdam and Utrecht to an online environment.

The MAB20 Program will take place online:

  • Workshops | June 24th – 29th | via Zoom
  • Online Conference | June 30th – July 2nd | via virtual conference platform

All sessions and activities (keynotes, paper sessions, symposia etc) will be held via Zoomrecorded, and made available on the platform after each session. All recordings will stay available on-demand for MAB20 attendees until August 1st. With this, we hope to enable equity of access to the content regardless of where a person is situated geographically while trying to provide convenient times as much as possible for our speakers.
