The International Metabody Forum is the platform of the Metabody project, a space of creation, meeting, exchange, research, education, dissemination and awareness generation, that takes place every year in multiple countries proposing a novel transdisciplinary format across the arts, technosciences, humanities and the social. The forum includes continuous research and developments, workshops, talks, symposiums and conferences, performances and installations, always focusing on diverse themes and developing in every city new versions of the intra-active Metatopia environments.

IMF seeks to redefine the role of the body in contemporary media culture, highlighting the importance of embodied expressions for cultural diversity, analysing the embodied material nature of information and the way media structure perception and social organisations, promoting the possibility to actively redefine such structures (ontohacking) through developing intra-/interactive environments that foster embodiment and indeterminacy, empowering citizens to  recuperate public space and the body as creative modes of resistance to the ways in which current media tend to invade or erase these transforming them into control spaces.
