Become a Friend

The BAI Friends Program was launched in 2017 with the aim of providing access to single sections/parts of our programs addressing those who cannot make it to participate in the entire block structure of our studio program or former participants who want to stay in touch with the institute. As a participant in the Friends Program you are invited to attend the lectures and visits in the framework of the BAI Studio Program and the BAI Spring Academy. Also the lectures embedded in the seminars are accessible. Beyond that you can join our visits to studios, galleries, exhibitions, museums etc. Before the start of each block you will receive the program details. 

For more information and registration please send a message to:

1 year (13 blocks) = 390 €

The fees are VAT-exempt by the Senate Administration for Education, Youth and Science pursuant to Paragraph 4 No. (21) (a)(bb) UStG (German Value Added Tax Act).

The participation fee is payable immediately after the BAI confirms the successful acceptance in writing. Please do not make a payment before receiving a final confirmation by the BAI.
