HeK (Haus der elektronischen Künste Basel)

HeK (House of electronic Arts Basel) is the national competence centre that deals with art forms that address and reflect upon new media and technologies. With its focus on interdisciplinary practices, it enables insights for a broad public into art productions of various genres between art, media, and technology. With its exciting programme that features exhibitions, small festival formats, performances and concerts, HeK engages with current social issues and technological aesthetic developments. Alongside its function as an event- and exhibition venue, HeK is involved in the methods of collecting and preserving digital arts.

Current exhibitions

Radical Gaming: Immersion Simulation Subversion

-
The works presented are characterized by a particularly unconventional approach to immersing oneself or interacting with video games, whose common narratives and stereotypes they subversively undermine. By appropriating the medium in their artistic practice, the artists discover alternate perspectives on identity construction, gender issues and social change.
