Z33 Research re-enforces and recapitulates strands of thought and research from exhibition projects of Z33 House of Contemporary Art in Hasselt, Belgium. Thematic art and design research studios – Studio Time, Studio Work and Studio Space – accumulate and connect the practice-based and academic research into an evolving body of knowledge. Z33 Research online (beta) collects and connects these different research threads. A new Z33 Research online platform for art and design research will be launched in late 2017 / early 2018.

Z33 House for Contemporary Art

Z33 House for Contemporary Art in Hasselt, Belgium, organizes projects and exhibitions of contemporary art and design. Instead of having a permanent collection, Z33 focuses on an ongoing programme of temporary exhibitions. These exhibitions always have a strong social and research-based orientation, and they address topics from various artistic standpoints with a critical eye. Each project combines an exhibition with an extensive programme of related events. In addition to exhibitions, Z33 organizes artistic projects in public spaces and serves as curator for exhibitions for external parties. In 2017–18, Z33 House for Contemporary Art will be renovated and a new wing will be built.
