Bar du Bois is, first of all, literally a bar. A wandering bar. Its furniture has been built by artists, and it is run by artists. Thus, Bar du Bois is also a polymorphic group of artists and a social place. And it is an artistically and curatorially experimental project established in contrast to the cult of recognizable artistic authorship, as an alternative to the art market’s obsession with commodities and the typically hygienic exhibition space of the white cube.
