Kunsthalle Basel is dedicated to exhibiting, discussing, and reflecting on the art of the present. And it always has been, since its founding in 1872. It was one of the first institutions in Switzerland to feature international and Swiss contemporary art, and today it is still among the country’s most active. It is renowned for its audacious and varied programs as well as for its engagement with artists, particularly those who are not yet widely known. It welcomes curious visitors of all ages and organizes up to 10 thought- provoking exhibitions per year, many of which include newly produced works. It also hosts a panoply of events — artist’s talks, performances, film screenings, and more — making it a vibrant site to experience contemporary art and take part in the discussions that surround it.
