About us

Founded in 2011, HeK (House of Electronic Arts Basel) ranks among the pioneering projects on Dreispitz in Basel. Its diverse program of exhibitions, festival formats, performances and concerts is devoted to all 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.

In October 2014, HeK will move into its new space on Freilager-Platz 9. From 21 to 23 November 2014 HeK celebrates the opening of this new venue with concerts, workshops and the first solo exhibition by Japanese artist Ryoji Ikeda in Switzerland.
