Budapest Art Factory (BAF) is an artist-run, not-for-profit studio, exhibition and project space founded in 2006. The studios of BAF have been installed in an 800m2 industrial hall, thus, adjusting to the weather conditions it is open yearly from May to October. While hosting five permanent artists – Sándor Szász, Márta Kucsora, Dóra Juhász, Levente Herman, and Eszter Csurka – BAF provides a platform for the dialogue of contemporary art in an international context.
In addition to organizing exhibitions and studio visits, BAF launched a twofold residency program. The mandate of this program is to invite internationally recognized artists, curators and art critics to Budapest and showcase their activities before the Hungarian public.
The Budapest Art factory was originally founded by Dianne C. Brown who had managed the organization until 2009.
