BAK, basis voor actuele kunst
3512 TG Utrecht
BAK, basis voor actuele kunst is a leading international platform for theoretically-informed, politically-driven art and experimental research. Based in Utrecht, BAK addresses the social, ideological, and environmental urgencies of the present by combining public programming and exhibition making with research, learning, and talent development. Working with communities involved in arts, activisms, and academia, BAK cultivates art as a public sphere and a space for politico-aesthetic experiments. BAK’s current long-term program Propositions for Non-Fascist Living (2017–2020) is prompted by the dramatic resurfacing and normalization of historical and contemporary fascisms in our present, and advocates the praxis of art as imagining and enacting ways of “being together otherwise.” BAK hosts a fellowship program and the publication platform Basics.
