Sabine Himmelsbach, the new artistic director of the House of Electronic Arts Basel (HeK), speaks about its main activities and her curatorial plans for the future. HeK was opened in May 2011 as a merger and successor of two festivals: [plug.in] Art & New Media and Shift – Electronic Arts Festival. Its primary focus is to presenting experimental media artists but also to start collecting new media art works, not present in the traditional museum’s collections.
I was also suprised to see how marginalized media arts still are in the context of contemporary art. I think the most important task is to really break this up and create an institution that is really one of the place that are recognized in the contemporary art field in Basel.
