On Future Day, girls and boys switch sides and gain practical insights into professions and fields of work. Kunsthalle Basel invites young girls to spend a day as a boss and get to know women in leadership positions. In doing so, the institution is fulfilling its educational mission to open up perspectives for the next generation and show young girls, particularly, a broad spectrum of possible career paths. From the technician to the curator – the participants experience various occupational fields in one day. In the end, they will have the opportunity to take on the role of curator and director Elena Filipovic and curate and present their exhibition inspired by the artworks on display.
In 2022, Kunsthalle Basel invited visitors to discover the professional fields within a cultural institution, taking a closer look at Daniel Turner’s exhibition Three Sites. In addition to an exchange with curator Elena Filipovic, the girls also got a first-hand look at individual professional fields at Kunsthalle Basel.
In 2021, Kunsthalle Basel invited young girls to get to know the institution and its professional fields, especially female leaders. In the exhibition by Michaela Eichwald Auf das Ganze achten und gegen die Tatsachen existieren, they also explored the works and subsequently created their own visual worlds inspired by them.
