Artpool Non-profit Ltd.
The Artpool Art Research Center is a non-profit institution which was opened in 1992. It is located in the center of Budapest. It houses a public library, multimedia archives, and the Artpool P60 exhibition space. Following the political changes of 1989, Artpool, which already had an international reputation, was officially recognized, and it was opened to the public as a non-profit organization. Its financial operation was based on contracts with the Budapest Municipal Council and the Ministry of Human Resources through two NGOs, the Artpool Foundation and the Artpool Non-profit Ltd. Due to the changes in cultural policy and the cuts in the state cultural budget in 2010, the Center lost the City’s support, and in 2014 it lost state support, which threw into question the future of the archive. In 2015, following prolonged negotiations, Artpool became a separate unit of the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest, thus ensuring its survival.
