Mediamatic is an art centre in Amsterdam dedicated to new developments in the arts since 1983. They organise lectures, workshops and art projects, focusing on nature, biotechnology and art+science in a strong international network.

Mediamatic is always looking for new developments in society. They are interested in how art, design and science merge and how people can use this to experiment with new (living) materials. They challenge the senses and tackle perceptions regarding food, waste and unconventional materials such as piss, bacteria and fungi. The processes involved are all based on sustainable principles.

They organise lectures to further discover how art, design and science merge and they look at how people's senses, such as taste and smell, influence emotions and associations. 

Mediamatic serves as an international network-hub with a physical location in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
