Inspiration around the house:
For her exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel, artist Lydia Ourahmane moved the entire contents of her apartment from Algeria to our galleries. The result—a strange intermingling of “home” with the “foreign” and “distant”—holds poetic potential. Most of us live with more or less similar objects, to which we generally pay little attention.
During her visit to the show, poet Judith Keller was inspired to design two short creative writing prompts. They inspire you to experience your own home with sharpened senses and generate poetic text fragments, word collections, even entire fantastic narratives.
We invite you to follow the two tutorials and get creative! Send us the results; we will publish selected submissions, and all participants will be entered in a raffle for a special prize: a small Kunsthalle Basel package.
