Program

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 (2017–2020) 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.

Forest Law

Considering nature as a rights-bearing subject, Forest Law (2014)—a collaborative video-installation by artist-researcher Ursula Biemann and architect Paulo Tavares—brings us to Ecuador where, not without challenges of its own, this radically altered relationship to the earth and the natural world has become possible.
