Foundation B.a.d was founded by a group of art students in 1987 and has resided at its current location, a former school building on Talingstraat 5, since 1991. B.a.d’s principal aim is to provide studios to its members, guest studios, and a venue for presentations and events. We offer temporary guest studios for local and international artists. As a Foundation with over three decades of experience, we are proud to have hosted more than 400 guests from around the world.

Welcome to B.a.d’s Kitchen Party, our contribution to the upcoming South Explorer event. The kitchen is our building’s heart; it’s where we meet, where chance encounters happen, and where we welcome you. Our Kitchen Party exhibition pays homage to this humble yet important space. We’re serving tea, coffee, and soup and bread all day. Join us! Our door is always open
