Budapest Art Factory (BAF) is a contemporary visual arts center, seated in a former industrial building in the capital of Hungary. Formed by several artistic studios and an exhibition program, BAF welcomes visitors all year round, providing a platform for the dialogue of contemporary art. BAF runs an International Artist Residency Program, and welcomes established artists as well as up-and-coming young talents for a one month artistic parctice. BAF holds exhibitions, panel discussions and studio visits, with the aim of connecting national and international art professionals.
The center and its programs were initiated by a group of professional Hungarian artists - Dóra Juhász, Márta Kucsora and Sándor Szász - in 2006.
Budapest Art Factory is now opening its new venue in the former ex-turbine factory, to support inspiration for its in-house and guest artists and sustain their creative work in a lofty and industrial environment.
