MusicMakers Hacklab is a collaborative, improvisatory, experimental environment that invites artists, technologists and researchers in the fields of sound, image and related arts to imagine and realise new ideas in a week of intensive activity. Conceived by Peter Kirn (CDM) and CTM Festival Berlin, the Hacklab travels to different festivals and events, mutating in response to different artistic themes, co-hosts, and participants.
The Hacklab arrives at MUTEK.MX this year with the "Immersive Invention" theme. Mexican collective Interspecifics and artist and professor Roberto Morales join Peter Kirn to launch an open call in search of 20 artists and experimenters that wish to join an intensive program of collective production and workshops to be held at Laboratory Arte Alameda in Mexico City. Taking place October 17 – 23, the projects and collaborations realized during this Hacklab will culminate with a presentation within the MUTEK.MX festival program.
Here is the team that will shape the second edition of the MusicMakers Hacklab in Mexico City. We are enormously grateful to the 70 applications we received this year!
