MAB20 was organized by the Special Interest Group The Playful City: towards playful urban futuring, with kind financial support from the Utrecht Center for Game Research. The event hosted around 550 people, who participated in 15 workshops, and another 600+ people from around the world attending the online conference, with almost 150 speakers, 42 online conference sessions, featuring inspiring and thought-provoking presentations. Due to the ongoing global pandemic, the Media Architecture Biennale had to be adapted and re-imagined. Therefore, the MAB20 Program took place online, with LIVE studio hosting and presentations from Pakhuis De Zwijger in Amsterdam.
