H Box is a mobile screening room showing the work of eight video artists. H Box was designed by artist and architect Didier Fiuza Faustino, while Benjamin Weil, executive director of Artists Space, New York, acts as artistic director of the project. The 6.5 by 5 metre unit, designed to accommodate 10 viewers at a time, shows works by artists from different countries and cultures. Alice Anderson, Yael Bartana, Sebastian Diaz Morales, Dora Garcia, Judith Kurtág, Valérie Mréjen, Shahryar Nashat and Su-Mei Tse are the first whose works are presented to the public in this way. Every year, four new artists join the programme as four others give up their place.

For this project, one element in Hermès long-established programme of support to artistic production, video was an obvious choice. Easily transportable and simple to work with, video is an art of movement. H Box will travel the world, in search of new audiences and new visions. Architecturally inventive and completely demountable, H Box is fitted with the latest in audio-visual technologies including an aluminium and Plexiglas screen offering irreproachable sound and image quality. A first presentation of H Box was held at the Centre Pompidou in Paris and a second at Musac, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León (Spain). After its presentation in Mudam, H Box, now in Tate Modern, will move on to Yokohama Triennale in Japan, as well as to other exhibition spaces all around the world.
