On Saturday 18 June, Foundation B.a.d opens its doors for 3D Zine!
3D Zine is a one-day event that emulates the publication of a magazine by showing live presentations about the diverse fascinations of those working at Foundation B.a.d. Each participant presents their magazine page alongside an accompanying real-life setting somewhere within Foundation B.a.d. Visitors collate their magazine as they browse through the presentations in the building.
24 artists and several guest artists live and work at Foundation B.a.d’s artist-run studio space. They represent a range of artistic visions, content, and visual practices. Their work and research takes on a variety of outcomes, including painting, sculpture, performance, sound, video, education, photography, expanded practice, and works in public space.
B.a.d’s guests and members work with a broad and layered variety of source material and inspirations. For 3D Zine, the foundation’s artists and guests will make presentations, in their studios and around the building, about their individual research, fascinations, and visual ideas.
Activated by these lively presentations, the foundation becomes a 3D publication, whereby each presentation – such as a performance, reading, sound works, video presentation, discussion, or interview – is also represented by a page of an actual magazine that visitors can collect and collate as they explore the building.

In two weeks, on Saturday 18 June, Foundation B.a.d publishes its pilot issue of 3D Zine: an event that emulates the publication of a magazine by presenting live updates on the diverse fascinations of those working at Foundation B.a.d. Each participant presents their magazine page alongside an accompanying real-life setting somewhere within Foundation B.a.d. Visitors collate their magazine as they browse through the presentations in the building.
On Saturday 4 June, we began preparations for the 3D Zine by sanding and painted our new double skinned presentation wall – all 470 x 1120 cm of it (53 square meters!). Needless to say, we’re really excited about the possibilities our beautiful new wall offers.
We concluded the day with an editorial meeting to finalise plans for the 3D Zine event on Saturday 18 June.
3D Zine is made possible with the generous support of the Mondriaan Fonds
