Art Agents – Join the Party

Because of the current situation regarding the Corona virus, we have transformed the project Art Agents into a digital version. Under the motto Join the Party, students of the Gymnasium Bäumlihof are currently developing visual and performative clips that relate to the exhibition of Nick Mauss Bizarre Silks,Private Imaginings and Narrative Facts, etc. In June 2020, you will be able to gain an insight into the project and the clips created here and on our online channels.

In the project Art Agents, school classes from the Basel region develop their own guided tour through the current exhibitions in dialogue with the artists. Visitors will learn from the perspective of the “art agents” how artists work and about the process of making an exhibition.

This integrative approach to mediation is based on giving participants the opportunity to acquire new knowledge, to consider what it has to do with themselves, and to pass on these experiences independently to interested parties. The guided tours in turn aim to give the public direct, personal, and immediate access to contemporary art.
