Het Apollohuis was an independent and internationally oriented platform in the arts, based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, in a former nineteenth century cigar factory.
The programme was directed at all artistic disciplines and combinations of media available to artists to express themselves. It focused in particular on the developments in the areas of sound art, new music, performance art and the new media.
Collaborations with other institutions and artist organizers at home and abroad occurred on a regular basis
Since 1980 until 1997 it presented annually approximately 10 exhibitions and installations which featured native as well as foreign artists and about 30 concerts and performances took place in the exhibition rooms.
The concert programme made cross-references to the visual arts and was focused on the spotting of new developments.
Het Apollohuis frequently invited artists to prepare a work, an exhibition, an installation or a publication. As an artist-in-residence the guest-artist had an apartment, studio space and amenities at his disposal.
Ever since its foundation, Het Apollohuis has also published prints, artist books, multiples, audio-cassette tapes, and developed very much as a publishing house of books, LP records and CDs. These publications supported the programme and promoted the reputation of the artists and Het Apollohuis.
