The photo archive of Kunsthalle Basel testifies to more than 100 years of exhibition-making at the institution through nearly 25,000 photographs, a selection of which is exposed to the light again. With their new artworks, Cécile Hummel, Esther Hunziker, Doris Lasch & Astrid Seme, Raoul Müller, and Werner von Mutzenbecher reflect on the complexity of the archive and the institution’s long history of exhibiting the now.
