... and so does iMAL

Twenty years ago, scientific researcher Yves Bernard founded iMAL (interactive Media Art Lab) to support artistic and creative endeavours linked with digital technologies. The Brussels institution’s pioneering of this connection between art and the new media and technologies gave it immediate international recognition. Ten years ago, CERN, the world’s largest laboratory of particle physics, founded Art at CERN, a programme dedicated to bringing together artists and scientists to support artistic innovation and openness to research environments. The artists spend their two-month residencies working alongside particle physicists and engineers. So it was only natural that the two institutions would work together to celebrate iMAL’s move into larger, improved spaces in its building along the canal in central Brussels. Director Yves Bernard and associate curator Ana Ancencio talk to us about iMAL and quantum theory.
