Kunsthaus Baselland is temporarily closed
Enjoy our Education Program for March and April from Home with Onlinetours, Live Stories, Cultural calls, Children's activities and Book gifts!
In the spirit of solidarity and in accordance with guidelines from the federal and cantonal authorities, the Kunsthaus Baselland is currently closed. The health of our visitors and staff is our highest priority. At the same time we remain convinced that culture is essential in these times. We would therefore like to continue to provide you with our arts education services and bring art and culture to your home in the coming weeks. We would love for you to take full advantage of our program since March 14, which is outlined below. If you have any questions or require assistance, please contact us by phone or email. The Kunsthaus team and the director Ines Goldbach wish you all the best and above all good health!

NEW: Online workshop for children
Make your own “Good Mood” blend (for children aged 5–12 years)
With Leila Bill, Merian Gärten
We will show you how you can easily make your own “get well soon” powder from different seeds and leaves. The best thing about it is that it also tastes really delicious! Plants such as peppermint, camomile or thyme, which you might even have at home, can help you to feel on top form. In her current exhibition at Kunsthaus Baselland, Marlene McCarty deals with the knowledge about plants and their use. Once you’ve made the powder you can store it in a nice jar and transform it into a delicious drink by adding it to hot water. The instructions will be available in a video here from April 8. Have fun!
Cultural calls every Thursday 10am—12pm
We will call you (for the time being until April 9) on Thursdays between 10am–12pm and have around a ten-minute discussion with you about a work of art from our current or previous exhibitions, which will be published on our website the day before or we will send you the image by other means. This program started on March 14. We are looking forward to some exciting conversations! Please make an appointment in advance so that we can arrange this by sending an email.
Thank you very much for the talk this week — we are very much looking forward talking with you this week on then phone!
This Thursday our director Ines Goldbach will talk to you about the video work Timeline by Christoph Oertli. You'll find an excerpt of the work here.
