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.

The young institution – founded in 2011 – is one of the pioneers on the Dreispitz area. From 21 to 23 November
2014 HeK celebrates the opening of its new venue on Freilager-Platz with concerts, workshops and the first solo exhibition by Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda in Switzerland.
