The story of Hiša kulture began in 1998 when a group of artists occupied an empty space in the centre of Pivka and arranged it in such a way that a wide range of cultural activities became possible. Here a programme began to unfold that covered the entire field of contemporary urban culture, and the gallery has consistently been a focal point of these activities. The new team that took over Hiša kulture in 2013 put the gallery programme at the forefront and began to develop and expand it with various funding programmes. Today Hiša kulture is the most important contemporary art gallery in the region between Ljubljana and Koper.

The programmes of Hiša kulture present contemporary trends in the visual arts, with a focus on unconventional and progressive authorial approaches. Special attention is paid to young and independent artists whose work shows an interest in social issues, a critical attitude towards the existing and an exploration of alternative worlds. In this way, the gallery aims to contribute, within its means, to creating a better society.

The gallery's guiding principles for its programming are relevance, independence, critique and freedom.
