ArtTech Foundation

About us

Where is technological innovation heading in the arts? Are cultural institutions making the most of technology? How do start-ups invest in cultural and artistic heritage projects?

These are some of the big questions that inspired a group of academic researchers and business leaders in Switzerland to found ArtTech in 2017.
With ArtTech, we’re creating an eco-system to explore these big questions through research and test innovative solutions with promising entrepreneurs.

We’re breaking down barriers between museum curators and start-up’ers, artists and academics, creatives and corporates. Together, we believe we can help the arts and culture to adapt and thrive in a digital age for the world to enjoy.
