Foundation B.a.d is a group of artists who since 1991 have been working (and in some cases also living) in a former domestic science school in the Charlois district. Foundation B.a.d., which started out as a squat, is now jointly managed by its users as a cultural free haven. The 18 artists of Foundation B.a.d. are active in a variety of media: painters, photographers, and artists who make conceptual, spatial or public artworks. Foundation B.a.d. squatted the building at Talingstraat 5 exactly 30 years ago, in 1991. The complex has enjoyed legal status since 2012. The 30th anniversary will be celebrated between 2021 and 2023 through various events as well as a publication.
