Videomobil. Taking art beyond the walls
With the newly initiated project "Videomobil", a van equipped with projection technique is on the road in the Basel region in the month of May. In short evening screenings (approx. 45 min), the Videomobil visits six communities of the Canton of Basel-Landschaft, weather permitting, and presents 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, Pipilotti Rist, Gerda Steiner & Jörg Lenzlinger and Andrea Wolfensberger, among others.
The Kunsthaus-Videomobil will be accompanied by Ines Goldbach and the Kunsthaus team. The number of participants is limited. The current protection and hygiene measures apply, with compulsory sitting and wearing of masks. The project is generously supported by kulturelles.bl, the Jubiläumsstiftung der Schweizerischen Mobiliar Genossenschaft and Novartis.
You will find all dates and locations here.

Exhibition Trailer: Afterlight. Afterglow
The trailer to the current exhibition "Afterlight. Afterglow. Video Installations and their Pioneers" with first insights and interviews with the artists can be found here.
Who am I?
In cooperation with the master's program Learning Lab Arts and Design led by Prof. Beate Florenz, students of HGK FHNW (Camila Fernanda Lucero Allegri, Jana Selina Marti, Kim Kellermann, Daniel Gregor und Samira Agha Majidi) have developed the mediation project «Wer bin ich?» (Who am I?) inspired by the video work «Boca de Tabla» by Mexican artist Teresa Serrano. The first episode encourages exploratory and participatory interaction in and with the exhibition.
Based on numerous questions from visitors, a second episode has now been realized, taking another work into account.
Further information on participation – digital or on-site – can be found 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.
Quarantine-Line. Art inspiration at home with a 10-day subscription
Quarantine, lockdown, precautions. Whatever these days should look like, we want to provide you with personal artistic input every day for a period of 10 days — be it a short text, a short video, a small selection of images.
