Call for proposals: Paid internship program
Mophradat’s Arts Fellows Program
at OFF-Biennale Association
An international contemporary art event, OFF-Biennale Budapest is the largest civil, independent arts initiative in Hungary. Organized on a grassroots basis by a micro-association, it is a DIY biennale based on self-organization and a collaboration of artists, curators, other cultural and civil organizations, galleries and students, among others. It does not apply for state funding and steers clear from state-run art institutions.
OFF-Biennale aims to strengthen the local independent art scene. It strives to take part in the social discourse on public issues and to enhance the culture of democracy by the means of art. Settling in private apartments, vacant shops, industrial buildings, alternative theaters and public places, it invites the public to explore the city. The next edition of OFF-Biennale is planned for April-May 2020.
