Artist Talks – Students in conversation with Regionale exhibition artists

Every year during the run-up to the Regionale exhibition, students from the Department of Art History at Basel University have the chance to brief themselves thoroughly on individual works appearing in the show. In conversation with the artists in front of a public audience, they subsequently discuss the specific ways in which the works have been done.

The next Artist Talks will take place during Regionale 25.
