Arts Institution

Z33, House for Contemporary Art, Design and Architecture in Hasselt, Belgium, is a ground-breaking arts institution in Hasselt that works at the intersection of art, design and architecture. It is a safe haven on the periphery with a magnificent new building and a refreshingly diverse program. It is a rugged playground for artistic research, with its sights set on the world, its feet in the mud, and a heart that beats for talent development, (un)learning, the enjoyment of research and scintillating collaborations.

Z33 is a secret tip off the beaten arts track. A seismograph for whatever is moving and shaking in society. An open centre where you can take time off from the world that you know. A laboratory where explanation, imagination and modeling come together and shed new light on questions both great and small. Nothing is taken for granted. What seemed distant comes closer.
