mex was founded in 1992 as an initiative for experimental and intermedia music projects, and was registered as a nonprofit association in 1994. Since that time, mex has provided curious, alert audiences and countless musicians and artists from around the world with a platform to present works ranging from soft to loud, from improvised to concept-based.
Experimental concerts in the context of media art
mex combines experimental concerts with the performance, video, intermedia, dance and visual arts in order to develop a crossover programme. While venues vary according to the context of scheduled performances, the main base is mexKeller in Künstlerhaus Dortmund. The association also acts as a guest curator; fundamental to its artistic concept with like-minded initiatives such as cuba-cultur (Münster), freies rheinland e.V. (Cologne), Voorkamer (Lier), Het Appolohuis (Eindhoven), Metrònom (Barcelona), CAS (Osaka), and Experimental Intermedia Foundation (New York).
