BEK – Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts is an interdisciplinary centre for the development of art and new technology. We aim to expand the field of electronic art through collaboration, critical reflection and knowledge sharing.
BEK develops experimental, creative and shareable projects within the fields of art and technology. We offer our expertise through supervision, project management and training. Our studios and project rooms are used for audio and video recording and editing, the use of technology in art and the development of spatial art practices. We actively support artists by establishing, producing and presenting artistic projects, and helping artists to find partners for exhibitions, concerts and events.
At BEK you will find a supportive and encouraging community of artists and collaborators who can helpyou to develop your artistic practice. 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.
