About the event
The idea of Bátor Tábor Contemporary Art Auction was born in Budapest, Hungary in 2005. Based on this experienc in 2013 the firs auction was organised in Warsaw. What began as a simple charity auction has, in a short time become a significant event on the Polish art market. Its dual aim is to raise fund to send Polish children with cancer to the Bátor Tábor camp and to promote contemporary Central and Eastern Europena art on a highly professional level. In 2018, the sixth edition tripled the revenues from 2013.
Our auctions are exclusive and internationally acknowledged events acting as annual meeting points for top artists, art professionals, and a community of art loving and philanthropic people. By organizing the autions we strive to create a win-win event where tha artist, the collectors and the charity partners are all gaining measurabel benefits from being involved. Our main partners are DESA Unicum S.A., the bigges auction house in Poland, and the Society for the Encouragement of Fine Arts, thanks to whom the auction is held in the renowned room of Zachęta – National Gallery of Art in Warsaw. The auction is conducted by Juliusz Windorbski, the CEO of Auction House DESA Unicum S.A.
