Van volxemlaan, 304
The Foundation is settled in a formerly industrial area of the town which has gradually been transformed into a residential neighborhood with many sites devoted to artistic creation. As a cultural actor, the Foundation’s desire is to participate in the life of this neighborhood. A genuine platform devoted to the photographic image, the A Foundation also works toward forming partnerships for exhibition and book projects organized in collaboration with Belgian and international cultural institutions. In October 2012, the A Foundation opened its doors in the south of Brussels on the site of the former Bata factories. Created upon the initiative of d’Astrid Ullens de Schooten Whettnall, and recognized as promoting the public interest, it has a vocation to support the creation, knowledge, and preservation of the photographic image.
