Located in the former Haggenmacher brewery, where beer was brewed until the late 30’s, the AQB creates today a different sort of creative blend, being a cultural melting pot, a centre of creativity for artists from Hungary and abroad. This venue enables painters, sculptors and all forms of artists and cultural craftsmen from different countries, to share, to develop, to engage in cross cultural creativity with local, Hungarian peers in order to broaden both professional and personal horizons and deepen their experience and perspective.
Art Quarter Budapest’s artist-in-residence programme is a meeting point for international and local artists. Each participant lives and works separately in his/her apartment and studio, while co-operation is promoted by means of regular consultations and a well-organized programme.
Artists’ applications are welcome from all countries in the world, regardless of the medium they use (painting, sculpture, media art, installation, graphic arts, etc.). There is no age limit. A basic knowledge of English, open-mindedness and good communications skills are welcome.
