About MU

The hybrid here, now, and later of visual culture

MU Hybrid Art House at Strijp-S is all about art in the broadest sense of the word. Together with mainly young makers and a broad, international audience, MU defines the liminal space between ‘what art is and what art can be’. 

Thereby, we prioritize the introduction to, elaboration on and hands-on experience of the creation of art. Starting from the near past and present of contemporary visual art, we focus on the unpredictable future of tomorrow and beyond and the role that hybrid artists want ánd can play in it. We combine this with Eindhoven's innovative strength in the field of design and technology, together with an open, inclusive drive to experiment. MU is curious for talent, and challenges talents to be curious. 

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