The Canton Basel-Landschaft exhibits works of art acquired during the previous year, as takes place each year. In 2014 the canton is the guest of the Kunsthaus Baselland and enables an insight into current artistic activity in the region before these works make their way into the cantonal parliament building and the offices of the cantonal administration. Key purchases in this year’s ERNTE are works for the dotMov.bl Collection, i.e. acquisitions of video and film works, as has been undertaken systematically since 1998.
ERNTE is accompanied by the solo exhibition competition. The winner of this competition, Martin Chramosta, will be given the opportunity to occupy three rooms in the Kunsthaus during the ERNTE exhibition.
ERNTE will be curated by Bernadette Hauert, kulturelles.bl, Department of Art and Music, and Ines Goldbach, Kunsthaus Baselland.
