This is Mediamatic

Since 1983 Mediamatic has been active as a cultural institution. We are interested in cultural developments that foster new technologies, and new technologies that spur cultural developments. We have produced CD-ROMs and magazines, exhibitions, workshops, salons, dev camps and other get-togethers. We contribute to the development of software and art, and occasionally act as a publishing company. was launched in 1994 and has been a growing online social network since 2002.


In 1983 our focus was on media technology: video art, installations and performance were the early core of our presentations, productions and Magazine. In the 1990s it was interactive media. We won international prizes with interactive CD-ROMs and organized the legendary Doors of Perception conferences (1993 and 1994). We then developed into leading creators of interactive social media projects. Our exhibitions, workshops and symposiums reached and continue to reach a large, diverse audience. In 1994, went online and our website has since grown into an online social network where members and organizations can exchange ideas and projects.

Besides, we have an online travel agency and an online dating service. We develop interactive installations in the Mediamatic Atelier, and we host a distributed library. These projects all deal with the same question: how are new media changing our society? With new technology and social media come new social issues - and old issues in new forms that can be tackled with new tools. Art and audience participation, however, form the core of our practice. Examples of these projects are El HEMA, an Arabic version of HEMA, WatSpinoza?, a public debate online and in Amsterdam and Kocaeli, and Over Datum Eetclub, challenging the food industry's wasteful policies. Kom Je Ook? is a program of workshops and symposiums concerned with new ways of working in the fields of art and heritage.

Right now

Mediamatic is researching and developing new ways of organizing resources and people. Operating from a leaking, unheated building east of the city center, we're part aquaponics farm, part mycolab, part project space. Aquaponics is the best way to sustainably produce food in the city, since hardly any water is wasted and you need very little space. We design aquaponics-installations that are suitable for offices, for living rooms and for the narrow Amsterdam balconies. During workshops we teach others how to build and take care of the ecosystem. Our aquaponics farm provides us with fresh veggies and fish. In the mycolab we research the possibilities of designing with organisms. Mycelium is our core material, and we believe it will eventually replace plastic. In our project space we organize exhibitions, lectures, workshops and other get-togethers such as dinners exploring the fields of art, society and new technologies.

We work independently together with Mediamatic Lab, sharing knowledge, technology and facilities. Lab designs community websites and applications for the likes of Amsterdam Museum, Joods Historisch Museum, and Reinwardt Academy.
