A DOMESTIC ART FAIR

ADAF — A Domestic Art Fair, is an unconventional annual fair, with the primary goal of translating artistic practices into functional ones through creation and experimentation. By doing so, ADAF aims to question the boundaries between art and design, aesthetics and function. Each edition seeks to build upon the previous, exploring new angles of domesticity. Hence, a new scenography is put forward every year, where participating artists are assigned to the creation of specific domestic objects for an atypical ephemeral exhibition.


“The psychology of living has not changed since someone came up with the clever idea of making themselves comfortable in a cave. The simple logic is: First the people shape their home, then the home shapes the people. The one determines the other, and the other the one.”Markus Peichl, September 2014.

ADAF 2024

This year, ADAF aspire to rejuvenate the concept of « Maisons du peuple » through your creations—also known as volkshuizen or « houses of the people. » Originating in Belgium around the 1900s, these buildings were constructed for and utilized by the working class, a concept later embraced by numerous other nations.

2ND EDITION

A Domestic Art Fair 2023 featured a scenography with “Common” as the theme.


Common living experiences were one of the first instances of a design towards an inclusive society in domestic environment. ADAF 2023 aimed to explore domestic design and its role in gender equality through the pieces created by 105 Belgium-based artists.


“The history of cohousing started over two thousand years ago, when Pythagoras founded Homakoeion, a vegetarian commune, based on intellectualism, mysticism and the equality of the sexes.” (Meltzer, 2006)
