Z33 is a ground-breaking arts institution in Hasselt, Belgium 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 programme. 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 modelling come together and shed new light on questions both great and small. Nothing is taken for granted. What seemed distant comes closer.
