With this two-part exhibition from the Parisbased artist Clément Cogitore (b. 1983, Colmar)the Kunsthaus Baselland presents the firstSwiss solo exhibition by the 2018 Prix MarcelDuchamp winner. In a practice that has developed over many years, the French filmmaker and photographer deals in-depth with the question of how pictures from advertising, entertainment, social networks or even rituals, secrets and illusory worlds all work, these pictures which occupy an active role in the creation of ways of life. While the first exhibition offered an overview of his work in recent years, now his new work The Evil Eye, for which he won the Prix Marcel Duchamp, will be the particular focus of an institutional presentation for the first time.
