Lange Nieuwstraat 4
Since its foundation in 2003, BAK has served as a space for art, knowledge, and activism. Its main mission is to advocate for the dynamic and critical role of art in society, and to catalyze discourse—with and through art as a form of active knowledge—on the urgent social and political issues of our times. BAK is a site of interlocution between and among various publics, convening on the basis of shared concerns to negotiate the concept of a common future through artistic imagination, intellectual rigor, and civic engagement. Underlining these efforts is BAK’s commitment to learning and education; artistic, theoretical, and political experimentation; and probing new methods and practices of collaboration and exchange.
