BAK Utrecht is a space for interlocution between contemporary art, theory, and activism. The organization engages in manifold long-term international research projects that include exhibitions, conferences, publications (both digital and analogue), as well as educational and learning programs. The projects are prompted by urgencies in society and engage in inquiry into the agency of art in relation to social change. Since its inception, BAK has realized a number of internationally acclaimed projects, including Who if not we should at least imagine the future of all this? 7 episodes on (ex)changing Europe (2004), realized across Europe during the Dutch Presidency of the EU, and Call the Witness, Roma Pavilion (2011), a collaboration with the European Roma (Travellers, Gypsy, and Sinti) community at the 54th Venice Biennale. From 2008 – 2016, BAK realized the long-term transnational and transdisciplinary project FORMER WEST and continues to invigorate it by inspiring collective practice.
