Quartair was founded in 1992 as a non-profit organization set by a group of young artists, freshly graduated by the KABK/Royal Academy of Fine Arts, in The Hague. Quartair is located at the former ‘Hague’s Bread Factory’, built in 1887, between Bilderdijkstraat and the Toussaintkade, The Hague. The monumental building, today managed by Foundation B141, was renovated in in 2010.
