Electrohype was founded in 1999 as a administrative tool for the Electrohype 2000 event. An event consisting of an exhibition, a conference an a workshop. During and after this event we realized that there was both a need and room for a reoccurring Nordic forum for new art made with new technology. We therefore decided to continue and expand our activities and have since the start in 1999 organized four major exhibitions and two conferences.
In September 2002 Electrohype received a massive funding allowing us to continue our activities on a more permanent basis. A large donation from the Foundation The Culture of the Future made it possible to establish the Electrohype Center. The Center will carry out continuous research and organize the upcoming biennials.
