HC is a collective endeavour exploring modes of thinking and working with more than one mind. Founded in Brussels in 2016 by Friedemann Heckel (based in Berlin) and Lukas Müller (based in Frankfurt). It is a format that allows the two artists to create unexpected and at times participatory situations and environments. The initials that make the name were diced – a fact that speaks about how chance and play might influence the transformative nature of this collective.
