PNEK (Production Network for Electronic Art, Norway) is a network structure aiming to provide good production conditions for artists working with electronic and interdisciplinary art. PNEK assists artists and structures with competence building, project development, workshops, screening/distribution of works, and activities aiming to raise the general awareness about hybrid art forms through seminars and social/artistic events. PNEK can provide limited travel support for artistic/structural exchange between the nodes, and for developing international relations (artists, curators, critics etc.).
PNEK also has a guest apartment in Oslo, available for visiting curators, artists, critics etc.
Gyrid Nordal Kaldestad is the director of PNEK (2017 – ) and Zane Cerpina is creative manager.
