BAK programming combines the artistic, experiential, theoretical, and political so as to imagine and enact transformative ways, with and through art, of being together otherwise. BAK’s current research trajectory Propositions for Non-Fascist Living (2017–ongoing) is prompted by the dramatic resurfacing and normalization of fascisms, historical and contemporary. BAK organizes exhibitions, lectures, publications, workshops, and composite performative conferences with exhibitionary, discursive, and performative elements.

Re-Posing: Resistance, Respiration, and Resolution

Artist Alfred Marasigan, artist and priest Jason Dy, SJ, curator and death companion Staci Bu Shea, and curator Renan Laru-an are interested in notions of care/nurture and control/subjugation, mortality/death and existence/life, as well as rituals/gestures and mediums/objects. These embodied/tensive experiences are posed for reconsideration in light of the new order/disorder of pandemic time.
