The h3h biennial took place from 3 June to 16 July 2023.

Every two years, the Foundation Kunst in De Heilige Driehoek organises a biennial of international stature. This special art event is situated in the area called De Heilige Driehoek, in Oosterhout, in the province of North Brabant. It is the only place in the Netherlands where a combination of three active monasteries can still be found. This unique area offers inspiration for modern and contemporary art.
