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 practice.
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 has recently opened its new venue in the former ex-turbine factory of the up-and-coming XIII. district. With its lofty and industrial ambience, it is an inspirational environment where in-house and guest artists can develop their creative work undisturbed.
