A series of work titles. Reminiscent of a poem, these words unite the various artists’ works beyond their position in the exhibition. The words allow for new connections. A kind of poetry in the space, which gives us space to think: different languages, styles, and subjects invite us to reconsider the prescribed and the familiar and to connect what is separated.

The invited artists use existing resources and structures but intentionally extract individual elements in order to create new relationships through their own artistic strategies.

The exhibition at the Kunsthaus Baselland presents seventeen artists who, in an incisive appraisal of their immediate environment, pose urgent questions about our current habits and our current situation. The resulting conceptual spaces are explored by different external guests each week, who expand them with their own perspectives. Souvenir-like texts allow the visitors to remember what they have seen and to pursue some of the ideas themselves.

Curator: Géraldine Honauer, Ines Tondar and Ines Goldbach (Assistant Curator)
