BAU was founded in 2004 in Viareggio, on the coast of tuscany, by a group of artists and individuals interested in the many-sided aspects of the culture of our times. thanks to a widespread and constantly expanding network of contacts, every year the project takes the shape of an expressly designed unia4 sized box: BAU container of contemporary culture. This non-profit box is produced in a limited edition of 150 copies (120 for issue 1 and 200 for issues 9-10) and contains original works, signed and numbered, from a large number of international contributors. The BAU container fits in the vast tradition of assembling publications and artists’ magazines that developed since the early sixties. It intends to experiment with new languages, technologies and materials, operating in a peculiar dimension of group work that is open also to contributions from non-artists: outsiders, travellers, collectors of curiosities, creative gastronomers, anomalous scientists. In a relational and non competitive perspective that is responsive to the relationships between art and science, politics and environment, bau acts as a meeting point in order to stimulate dialogues, interactions and exchanges among the most diverse disciplines: graphics, collage, photography and the visual arts in general, but also poetical and narrative researches, acoustic and performative experiences, documents pertaining the fields of fashion and design, etc. the operative network expresses itself also through the planning of exhibitions, meetings, festivals and events, organized in institutional spaces (libraries, galleries, museums) and in atypic locations.
