Public tandem tour through the exhibitions “INFORMATION (Today)” and “Mock-up”

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 unite contemporary artistic positions with current topics related to architecture and urban development.

This joint tour of the two institutions first explores the group exhibition INFORMATION (Today), which investigates twenty-first-century data-based capitalism and its manifestations in encrypted networks, digital currencies, artificial intelligence, and a host of other phenomena that define our everyday lives from the background. Subsequently, these difficult-to-decipher digital mechanisms will be 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.
