Hartware MedienKunstVerein - HMKV

The Hartware MedienKunstVerein (HMKV) is a platform for the production, presentation and communication of contemporary and experimental (media) art. ‘Media art’ is not meant as a technically determined genre “with a high fun factor”, but rather as contemporary art that concerns itself both in content and concept with the present-day world, which is strongly characterized and radically altered by new media and technology. HMKV's are characterized by a broad understanding of the concept of media art, placing media art quite consciously in the context of contemporary art.

Since its inception in 1996, the HMKV has staged numerous exhibitions, programmes of film, video, music and performance, workshops, lectures and conferences in various cities in Germany and abroad, including Dortmund. Among the 40 exhibitions of the last fourteen years have been important projects such as Zones of Desire (Dortmunder U, 1998); games – Computer Games by Artists (2003); History Will Repeat Itsel (2007); Anna Kournikova … Art in the Age of Intellectual Property (2008); “Awake Are Only the Spirits”– On Ghosts and their Media (2009); Building Memory and Arctic Perspective (2010).

In the U, the 3rd and 6th floors are available for HMKV’s exhibitions, putting HMKV in the position of being able to realize individual exhibitions as well as large thematic group exhibitions.

From HMKV’s many international collaborative projects a broadly diverse, international and open network has emerged. HMKV’s proximity to the TU Dortmund University and the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts as well as to the Centre for Cultural Education creates an expectation of very promising cooperative work and an expansion of HMKV’s current activities in this area. 

In 2011, HMKV receives the prestigious JUMP Annual Sponsorship Award for art organizations by Kunststiftung NRW. Since 2000 HMKV has managed North Rhine-Westphalia’s Grant for female Media Artists; since 2006 the office of the North Rhine-Westphalian medienwerk.nrw has been housed with HMKV.
