We consider culture to be all the more vital in the troubling times we are living in. But we are also mindful that in light of the current spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), gatherings of people put at risk the visitors and colleagues we hold dear.

We are closely monitoring the situation and the measures recommended by the Swiss Federal Council. We are thus sorry to inform you that until further notice Kunsthalle Basel will not be open to the public until further notice, our staff will largely work from home, our administration offices will be closed, and we will not be able to hold the following public events as previously announced::

>Events at the Kunsthalle Bar, March 12, 19, and 27, 2020
>Presentation of the art education project Join the Party, Thurs, March 19, 2020
>Book presentation and reading, Fri, March 20, 2020
>Opening Deana Lawson, Thurs, March 26, 2020
>Guided tours through the exhibitions

We will continually inform you about changes here and will update you about the new exhibition and events schedule when we can reopen again.
