About MU

About MU

The hybrid here, now, and later of visual culture

MU is an explorative presentation platform that operates in a rich international network of creatives who define the liminal space between ‘what art is and what art can be’.

MU initiates, produces and presents rather new works, and surrounds it with an extensive and interdisciplinary secondary program targeted to a broad and rather young audience. 

MU prioritises introduction to, understanding of, elaboration on, and experiencing hands-on creation, of art.

MU is curious for talent, and challenges talents to be curious. 

MU provides a platform for artistic research, and development of artists and designers, and helps them to profile themselves internationally.

MU is located in a former Philips factory at Strijp-S in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
