About this website

Z33 is a house for contemporary art.  Since 2013, Z33 has started to redefine its core mission as a project based exhibition maker, to a research-based institution. Our exhibitions have always been strongly research-based, looking into phenomena not only from the perspective of art or design but interlinking these views with theoretical, scientific and philosophical thought. Exhibition projects spread out over several years are constantly recapitulating or reconsidering themes, projects and artists of earlier exhibitions. In order to re-enforce and articulate some of these continuous strands of thought we started redefining our own institutional practice in terms of research clusters that will be explored throughout different projects and in different time frames. This website collects and connects all these different research threads.
