BEK – Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts – is an interdisciplinary production centre for art and new technology. BEK develops, produces and communicates projects in the intersection of contemporary art, technology, theory and social critique.

BEK arranges workshops and courses for artists in different stages of their careers, and offers advice and development support to artists and art organisations. Through the residency programme, BEK opens its studios and production facilities to over 40 local and international artists annually. BEK’s discursive programme explores theoretical and ethical aspects of the technological development.

At BEK you will find a supportive and encouraging community of artists and collaborators. We work locally, nationally and internationally on collaborative projects and knowledge exchange. The organisations and venues in our network are committed to sharing experimental art and music with a wide audience.


BEK is organised as a non-profit foundation.

Our board is:

Marit Paasche (Chair)
Ana María Bresciani (Deputy Chair)
Sveinung Rudjord Unneland
Grethe Bjørndal
