Filmscreening #3: It's About SHE SHE Now, 20.4.19, 18.30— ca. 20 Uhr
Accompanying the 2019 annual programme, Chantal Molleur of White Frame will curate three extensive evening film screenings inspired by the exhibitions, enabling further reflection on these subjects through selected international and national short films and videos.
The first screening called It’s About SHE SHE Now! will take place on March 20th during the exhibitions Anna Winteler, Körperarbeit. Eine Retrospektive 25.1. —28.4.2019.
An idiom is by nature established by usage. Entitling our film program 'It’s About SHE SHE Now!’ relates to the 19th century idiom ‘it’s about time’. My underlying meaning refers also to Ruth Bader Ginsburg aka Notorious RBG on the #MeToo movement. I started thinking about the impact of women like Anna Winteler who held their positions with self-determination and engagement. I went on daydreaming of a world where women would be the norm with men instead of the exception. I thought of American artist Judy Chicago who was cited recently on the instagram account of The Feminist Institute with the following quote: ‘it is enough to make me rise eagerly from my bed each morning and face the challenge of breaking the historic silence that has held women captive for so long.’
How do we relate today to our understanding of inclusion and exclusion of women and on the relationships between genders? I decided to select works that connect with these premises by or about women portraying and investigating identity, empowerment, re-appropriation and activism through the lenses of local, national and international artists and filmmakers.

2018 most successful year for Kunsthaus Baselland so far
2018 was the most successful year so far for Kunsthaus Baselland (see also the article in the BZ of 2.3.2019). Exhibitions such as Beehave, a cooperation with the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, L'Univers de Germaine by Muda Mathis, Hipp Mathis and Sus Zwick and the diploma exhibition of the Institut Kunst HGK FHNW as well as the large exhibitions during Art Basel by Rochelle Feinstein and Naama Tsabar, whose performance attracted 800 visitors in one day alone, contributed to the high number of visitors. A big thank you to all friends and supporters of Kunsthaus Baselland!
