H BOX is an ‘innovative’ roaming screening hall, presenting major new video commissions by eight international  artists. designed by architect didier fiuza faustino, the unique structure hosts a rotating, diverse programme of videos by alice anderson, yael bartana, sebastián díaz-morales, dora garcía, judit kúrtag, valérie mréjen, shahryar nashat, and su-mei tse.

consisting of two entirely collapsible modules constructed of aluminum and perspex, H BOX can be assembled, disassembled and transported as required. it is designed to travel the world, in search of new audiences. each year, as H BOX tours between museums internationally, four new artists will join the programme as four  others give up their place. the itinerant nature of the structure and the commissions shown within it highlight the exciting fluidity of video, a medium that continues to reshape the twenty-first century.
