welcome to sickhouse !

The atomic playground of Enschede! 💜🌊🎮

Sickhouse is a playful art space focused on the impact of digital & popular culture on our society. We aim to work on a dynamic and healthy ground for culture and its relation to the public.

Located at the top floor of Warp Technopolis at Stationsplein 1, 7511 JD Enschede.


Because of the Corona virus situation, Sickhouse is temporary closed until the 1st of June. We are looking into playful ideas to keep our Friday program running.

Keep your physical distance, stay socially as close as possible 🙂
Good luck and take care of each other. Lot's of love to everyone!


We’re open every Friday evening for a film projection, a gaming night or a music evening.  
Once a month the Friday is reserved for a Cinema Obscura night. 


From Monday to Friday, in the afternoons, Sickhouse turns into a workspace with access to coffee and tea. We’re open for freelancers and students to work and relax.

Sickhouse can also be used for informal meetings and on appointment, we set up games and VR experiences for meetings.

@ Sickhouse you’ll find art with a predilection for interactivity, games (indie, VR, retro), films, B-movies, trash & underground, music (especially 8 bits, modular synthesiser and live coding) and other diverse forms of creative & playful thinking!

Theme 2020

The end of the world as you know it!

In the 2020 edition of The Overkill festival, under the title “The end of the world as you know it” we are focusing on exploring hopeful futures. We want to look at communities and collaborative platforms that are experimenting with new ways of living together in a catastrophic environmental and economical context. If video games are often about saving the world, we want to explore the different scenarios of gaming and movies and see how this can stimulate a social debate.
