H BOX, lest you deduce otherwise, is not a gaming machine. But its raison d’etre is quite similar: entertainment. H BOX is a mobile video screening hall which takes the work of eight talented international video artists on a tour around the world. A collapsible structure of aluminum and Perspex, the H BOX showcases work of Alice Anderson, Yael Bartana, Sebastián Díaz-Morales, Dora García, Judit Kúrtag, Valérie Mréjen, Shahryar Nashat, and Su-Mei Tse. H BOX is easy to assemble and disassemble and is transported to various parts of the world in search of fresh audience. The artists themselves rotate in groups of four at a time as H BOX moves around internationally between museums. The structure, capable of housing ten people at a time, is designed by architect Didier Fiuza Faustino and has been produced by Hermès.
It was unveiled in November 2007 in New York and has since traveled to Spain and Luxemburg. From July 3 to August 17, H BOX is exhibiting at Tate Modern in London wherefrom it’ll travel to Japan.
