Informations

A Platform for Young Artists
The Kunsthaus Baselland is among the leading exhibition venues for regional, national and international contemporary art in the Basel region. Since 1998 the repurposed factory building has offered (young) artists a platform of more than 1'400m² for artistic exchange in the framework of solo, group or thematic exhibitions. Numerous regional, and some international artists have had their first institutional showing in Switzerland or in Europe here.

Regional and International
The curatorial programme is focussed on contemporary art in the Basel region which is positioned within an international discourse through accompanying international and national exhibitions.

Engagement with Architecture and Site
The Kunsthaus Baselland supports and promotes the creation of new works that enter into dialogue with the Kunsthaus architecture and/or that of the Basel region. Under the current director many of the invited local, national and even international artists have been encouraged to develop new, sometimes large-scale works and work series specifically for this site.

Create Access to Art
As a public institution there is awareness of the Kunsthaus Baselland’s educational remit. An established educational programme is offered for children, young people and adults that is consistently developed and extended.

Lively Discourse
The Kunsthaus Baselland should be a lively place for exchange and informed encounter with contemporary art. The exhibition programme is therefore, despite limited means, augmented by publications, talks and conversations with artists, creators and figures from business, politics and education. The Kunsthaus opens its doors for the study of artists and their works of art through collaboration with neighbouring, internationally active further education institutions.

Original und Reproduktion – Stefan Karrer übersetzt eines der ewigen Themen der Kunst in die digitale Gegenwart.

Regelmässig dürfen junge Positionen das Kunsthaus Baselland für sich einnehmen, die Online-Führung gibt einen Einblick in die «Solo Position» mit Stefan Karrer.

Essenzielle Fragestellungen 
«4 Solos for the Kunsthaus Baselland» bespielt die aussergewöhnlichen Räume des ehemaligen Fabrikgebäudes mit essenziellen Fragestellungen der zeitgenössischen Kunst. Fragen nach Raum und Wahrnehmung, nach Grenzen und Übergängen, nach Innen und Aussen. Die Direktorin und Kuratorin Ines Goldbach hat David Keating, Karin Hueber, Boris Rebetez und Felix Schramm eingeladen, mit und in den Räumen zu arbeiten.
