HeK (House of Electronic Arts Basel)

Technique and industry
HeK is dedicated to digital culture and the new art forms of the information age. It is a place for creative and critical discourse on the aesthetic, socio-political and economic impact of media technologies. HeK shows contemporary art that explores and configures new technologies; it promotes an aesthetic practice that uses information technology as a medium, makes it vividly accessible and actively intervenes in its processes. HeK thereby addresses the pressing issues of twenty-first-century culture and makes an active contribution to their future evolution.

HeK ranks among the young pioneers on the Dreispitz site, a former customs depot and freight handling facility. It moved to its current venue at Freilager-Platz 9 in October 2014. The official inauguration of the specially converted new venue took place on 21 November 2014.
