Turkish Bath: Documentation space
Bains::Connective is in the first place a house where artists can focus on research and process during a residency. B::C offers them time and space to create a work and present it to a first public.
A priori no one is excluded. B::C is a house that urges on artistic exchange: between artistic disciplines and artists, between experience and newcomers, between emotions and structures, between the organization and its own history, its position in the neighbourhood, its architecture, its openness towards new projects.
Bains::Connective is situated in the ancient art-deco swimming pool of Forest.
