MAD Foundation (since 1995) was founded as an artists' initiative and has developed into a very active organization with enthusiastic volunteers. Each with their own specialization, developing connections between art, science and technology.
MAD acts as a laboratory and platform provider for emergent art: art that emerges from the tension between cultural - and cutting-edge technological developments. MAD keeps its interfaces as large as possible and is intended for artists, designers, scientists, technologists, public interest groups, educational institutions, governments and businesses. This is done both regionally, nationally and internationally. The use of networks such as the Internet, ICT and new media allow research, production, presentation, distribution and discussion in an interactive way to raise and accessible to broad audiences.
Activities are developed and implemented based on a number of key tasks:
MAD lab - Laboratory technology and art (creative lab)
MAD events - Presentation, discussion and distribution of emergent art
MAD network - Platform for artists, education, researchers and technologists.
Open Data - Platform for data producers, data processors and data users.
