The Polish-British artist and choreographer Alex Baczynski-Jenkins (* 1987) deploys micro-gestures, dance, and minimal sets to trace desire, alienation, and collectivity. His practice is specifically concerned with the mediation and politics of queer desire, staging affect and intimacy through live performance. At Kunsthalle Basel, several recent performances by Baczynski-Jenkins will be experienced during special opening hours for the duration of the exhibition.
