The search for a well defined crossing point , an
interface where art and economy beneficially meet each other.
Buda Fabriek: Conceptual Work in Progress
The search for a well defined crossing point, an interface
where art and economy beneficially meet each other, turned
out to be a maze …

Definitions ….

“The interesting thing about an artist’s way of work is the


ability to think differently and to create something new and
unexpected out of something perceived as static and
impossible to change” (Jan-Peter Idström)

Buda Fabriek: Conceptual Work in Progress
“ Now that globalization continues to power forward, clusters of industries become more
specialized in individual locations. Economic activity is clustered across the globe –
watches in Switzerland, disk drives in Singapore, flat panel displays in Korea,
semiconductors in Taipei, Circus in Montréal, Telecommunication in Helsinki, manufacturing in
Shanghai. Each region has to define its strength and attract complementary partners.”
(Richard Florida –Who’s your city).

Breakthrough: there is no crossing point

ARTs ECO
Buda Fabriek: Conceptual Work in Progress
The maze showed some common ground between Art and Economy:
Media , Architecture , Fashion , ( industrial )
Design
Economic driven businesses that need inspiration from the timeless, not
result driven Arts

That common ground between Art and Economy could also be instantiations of
alternative thematic clustering. Perhaps a more open path to multidisciplinary
projects and unexpected innovations…

Buda Fabric
“Buda Fabriek is the first artistic-economic project in Flanders.
Therefore it develops vital coalitions in which artists, creators,
companies, scientists or individual thinkers can interact and
search for social, artistic en economical innovation. By the
development of platform for knowledge sharing, the production of
prototypes and the presentation of innovative projects, Buda
Fabriek will become a thriving force for change in the region and
in the world”
