The art rooms at the Teufelhof
The Teufelhof was practically the inventor of the art room, for it is the first art hotel of its kind. These spatially expansive installations, veritable realms of experience, place their own demands on residents, allowing art to be experienced in a whole new manner. In conventional exhibitions, the audience has only a restricted amount of time to pause and reflect before being disturbed by other visitors. If you wish to exclude these aspects, there is only one option: You must create “exhibition terms and conditions” which provide the opportunity to make such a work of art habitable and capable of being experienced individually. This is exactly what the principles of the arthotel at the Teufelhof Basel are based on: Here, in the hotel rooms, art installations are created that can be experienced in the truest sense of the word — by the guests, but also by the visitors.
Georg Baselitz at the Fondation Beyeler
Georg Baselitz (b. 1938) is one of the foremost artists of our time. To mark his eightieth birthday, the Fondation Beyeler will be showing an extensive selection of his work as a painter, sculptor and printmaker. The exhibition, organized in close cooperation with the artist, takes the form of a focused retrospective, bringing together many of the most important paintings and sculptures created by Baselitz over the past six decades. These powerful and exciting works, from every phase of the artist's career, reveal the astonishing range of his creative imagination.
Georg Baselitz at the Kunstmuseum Basel
On occasion of his eightieth birthday, the Kupferstichkabinett (Department of Prints and Drawings) honors Georg Baselitz, a leading protagonist of German postwar art, with a retrospective of his graphic oeuvre. One hundred large-format and color drawings offer insight into a probing engagement with the medium that spans six decades.
