Hardcore Art Contemporary Space opened its doors in late 2005. The gallery took its name from the exhibition “Hardcore: art towards a new activism”, curated by Jerome Sans, curator and former director of Palais de Tokio (2003). HACS presents the work of cutting-edge, new media and international emerging to mid-career artists who use innovative and provocative mediums to raise questions about our post-contemporary society. The gallery focuses on projects and proposals that touch on present universal subject matters as: genetics, green issues, abuse, cloning, politics, sexuality, and other social topics. It also supports artists who often adopt extreme positions, those who push limits and those who question their impact on society.
