We show that quasi-projective Bestvina–Brady groups are fundamental groups of complements to hyperplane arrangements. Furthermore we relate other normal subgroups of right-angled Artin groups to complements to arrangements of hypersurfaces. We thus obtain examples of hypersurface complements whose fundamental groups satisfy various niteness properties.
Keywords: Bestvina–Brady quasi-projective groups, Artin kernels, hyperplane and toric arrangements, quasifibrations
