Created in 1998 and based in Bourogne (Territoire de Belfort, France) The Espace multimédia Gantner is a place for discovery, experimentation and research for digital art, be it historical or new.

The place is articulated around several activities and is for everyone (experts, non experts, grown ups, children):
— The work of research and discovery of the collections of art and documentation,
— The exploration of contemporary creation through exhibition and artists residencies,
— The reception, the mediation and the communication toward all publics,
— The partnerships with other artistic, academic and cultural structures,…
These activities often intertwine and have their share in the dynamics and questioning of the place.

The exhibitions at the Espace multimédia Gantner interrogate and disturb our relationship to technologies. The mission of the Espace multimédia Gantner, rooted in historical influences, is to shed light not only on emerging and disrupting artists (“Brut Now : Art brut in the technological era” in 2016, “SO3 : Art, Biology, (Al)Chemy” in 2015…) but also on pioneers like the Vasulkas (2014).

The Espace multimédia Gantner is a service of the Département du territoire de Belfort, supported by the French Ministry of Culture, the DRAC Franche-Comté, the Franche Comté Region and the city of Bourogne.
