presente is a quarterly publication created by Anna Maria Maiolino and Paulo Miyada. It is comprised of correspondences and other texts and productions made between two or more people, and its hearthstone is the field of visual arts in Brazil, though it sometimes ventures far away from home. Its features are simple and direct, and its subject is the present.
Now the second issue has been published in cooperation with Kunsthaus Baselland as part of the exhibition by Anna Maria Maiolino.

Videomobil. Taking art beyond the walls
With the newly initiated project "Videomobil", a van equipped with projection technique was on the road in the Basel region in the month of May. In short evening screenings (approx. 60 min), the Videomobil visited six communities of the Canton of Basel-Landschaft and presented a selection of video works, mainly from the dotMov.bl - Sammlung Neue Medien Baselland collection, on outdoor squares. With works by Erich Busslinger, Clément Cogitore, Lena Eriksson, Dirk Koy, Reinhard Manz, Gerda Steiner & Jörg Lenzlinger and Andrea Wolfensberger, among others. Since the project has been very well received, there are considerations for a continuation this fall.
The project was generously supported by kulturelles.bl, the Jubiläumsstiftung der Schweizerischen Mobiliar Genossenschaft and Novartis.
Building permit granted
At the beginning of November 2020, the Kunsthaus Baselland Foundation and the Kunstverein Baselland applied for a building permit for the new Kunsthaus Baselland in Dreispitz. On April 13, 2021, the Building Inspectorate of the Canton of Basel-Landschaft granted the Kunsthaus Baselland Foundation permission to build the new Kunsthaus in Dreispitz.

Artists’ Studio Visits
For artists, working alone in the studio for days, weeks, and even months at a time is not only normal but often a prerequisite for producing creative and innovative ideas and artworks. Can we also draw inspiration from this ourselves? In the last few weeks we visited a small selection of artists who have already prepared for exhibitions but are currently unable to present their work to the public. By sharing our studio visits with you, we want to help these artists gain visibility and also keep the buzz about their postponed exhibitions alive.
With the support of the Stanley Thomas Johnson Foundation, new interviews could have been broadcasted from mid-November, allowing more artists to be discovered online. With Brigham Baker, Simone Holliger, Aida Kidane, Monica Klingler and Doris Lasch.
