Since 1987 Careof fosters creativity and artistic experimentation in every expression and form. It is a place where young and established artists can be inspired, exchange views and be encouraged to experiment, debate and grow. 

We focus mainly on video art and work through our exhibition space, video and book archive, an international residency programme and a bookshop. 

The Residency Programme aims to foster artistic practice through the cultural exchange between foreign guests and the local community. 

The video archive includes over 7,000 pieces and is the most important collection of videoart in Italy. The catalogue holds over 6,000 artworks, from the first experiments made in the 70s to work by the latest generations, and about 1,000 videos documenting art events of international relevance. 

Since 2002 Careof is located at Fabbrica del Vapore in Milano. It is an industrial building from the early 20th century, which was originally meant for the construction and sale of railway and tram material, and today is a youthful centre of cultural production. In December 2013 a new group took over the management at Careof and is working to transform the cultural project into a sustainable one.
