BEK – Bergen Centre for Electronic Arts is an interdisciplinary production centre for art and new technology, established in 2000. 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 advising and development support to artists and art organisations. Through the residency program 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. (2022)
