New Kunsthaus Baselland: Building application submitted!
The Kunsthaus Baselland Foundation and the Kunstverein Baselland have submitted a building application for the new Kunsthaus Baselland at the Dreispitz. The building’s completion is scheduled for early summer 2023. While base financing is secured, further donations are needed for exhibition infrastructure inter alia. The new Kunsthaus Baselland meets the most modern in museum presentation requirements for comtemporary art and aims to play an important role in the up and coming Dreispitz area with its many other cultural institutions.
Please find further information here.
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.
