In May 2015, the CASTII (Center for Arts, Sciences, Technologies, Innovations and Inclusion) project, initiated and led by iMAL, was selected by the Brussels-Capital Region as part of the European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020.

With CASTII, iMAL wants to develop a newly equipped art center, offering an art and culture programme for a large audience, both international and local for the Molenbeek and Brussels population. iMAL, Center for Digital Cultures and Technology, is the integration of a digital arts center, a medialab and a fablab. The center holds a unique position in Europe and is renowned both locally (in Brussels, Wallonia and Flanders) and internationally.



Axoloti is a new open-source platform to build synthesizers, drum machines, audio effects
and other weird instruments. It consists of a microcontroller board, and a patcher software.


In 2015 Morehshin Allahyari & Daniel Rourke released The 3D Additivist Manifesto, a call to push the 3D printer to its absolute limits and beyond into the realm of the speculative, the provocative and the weird. Projects responding to that call were later published in The 3D Additivist Cookbook. In the framework of the Shiv Integer exhibition, iMAL invites Daniel for a lecture on the Manifesto+Cookbook, and for a two-days additivist masterclass.


In her Filament Sculptures project, pioneer digital artist LIA has been researching the behaviour of filament-based 3D printers. During this masterclass, she will explore with the participants new approaches for 3D printing sculptures, based on computation, the physical properties of the printing material and direct control of the machine.
