In the series BAK, basis voor…, BAK joins forces with other organizations in addressing shared urgencies and developing propositions for “being together otherwise.” The series was conceived as part of the project Trainings for the Not-Yet, organized by artist Jeanne van Heeswijk and BAK from 14 September 2019–12 January 2020. Trainings for the Not-Yet consists of an exhibition as a series of “community learnings,” performative workshops, artworks, learning objects, and conversations. In the framework of this project, intensive collaborations with (inter)national artists, theorists, and activists take place, as well as collaborations with initiatives and communities based (mainly) in Utrecht.

As part of the series BAK, basis voor…, BAK currently collaborates with Extinction Rebellion Utrecht, New Women Connectors, De Voorkamer, Utrecht and Welkom in Utrecht.
