Basel’s major museums invite art connoisseurs to engage in an exciting encounter with works of art. A multitude of small off-spaces additionally contribute to the extraordinary reputation of Basel as a city of art. A Roland for an Oliver presents the city’s multifaceted offer as a clearly organized mosaic which becomes a guided tour through the art landscape of Basel. Such an overview of most independent, noncommercial art spaces and projects, both analog and digital platforms, forms an accessible orientation within the Basel art scene for national and international visitors alike, and at the same time, communicates its diversity.
Dominik Denzler and Samira Liebendörfer are primarily responsible for the project. Claire Hoffmann and Alice Wilke — from the project deuxpiece —
support it from a curatorial and editorial point of view.
