Public tandem tour through Kunsthalle Basel and S AM Schweizerisches Architekturmuseum

Culture under one roof

Kunsthalle Basel and S AM Schweizerisches Architekturmuseum are united not only by a common roof but also by their mutual enthusiasm for art, culture, and society. They combine contemporary artistic positions with current topics related to architecture and urban development.

The following public tandem tour will take place on Sunday, August 21, from 3-4 pm in the exhibitions Michael Armitage You, Who Are Still Alive, and Napoli Super Modern.

On Thursday, 30. September, we explored the group exhibition INFORMATION (Today), which investigates twenty-first-century data-based capitalism and its manifestations in encrypted networks, digital currencies, artificial intelligence, and various other phenomena that define our everyday lives from the background. Subsequently, these difficult-to-decipher digital mechanisms have been juxtaposed with the architectural mock-up, a 1:1 scale model of a facade or other part of a building that tests and demonstrates a design element.

On Sunday, 29. August, the works of Detroit-born artist Matthew Angelo Harrison got explored, followed by a discussion on the mock-up and its significance in architecture and public space.
