B.a.d: the epitome of entrepreneurship

ROTTERDAM, OUD-CHARLOIS

Foundation B.a.d is an artists' initiative. It was founded in 1987, when a group of art students squatted a decommissioned bath house. The experience was short lived but influential as it inspired the need to establish a formal structure, and subsequently B.a.d was founded (Stichting B.a.d – Bad meaning ‘Bath’ in Dutch). As a collaborative, the Foundation has participated in many international exhibitions. In 2001, Foundation B.a.d began a project called 'B.a.d to The Future!' The aim of this project was to secure the premises for long term use, which included finding new partners, renovating the building, and continually rethinking how we function as an artistic organisation. Meet the artists who squatted the building, hear their story and ask them anything. B.a.d has hosted over 400 artists in residence from around the world. They have a large hall and garden, which can be used by members and guests for artistic and social activities. All this makes Foundation B.a.d an enjoyable and pleasant place for artists to work and stay.
