Kunstkredit Basel-Stadt 2020, Kunsthalle Basel, 25.10.2020–8.11.2020
Under the title A-PART, this year's Kunstkredit Basel-Stadt exhibition reflects on what connects us and what divides us. On show are the positions of eight artists who were supported by Kunstkredit Basel-Stadt in 2019. They are both apart and a part at the same time: they are part of a diverse and lively regional art scene and yet stand for themselves and choose their own independent aesthetic or media strategies. The exhibition A-PART is dedicated to this area of tension between proximity and distance: that our everyday life this year is determined by necessary distance and forbidden proximity. The fact that proximity is possible despite distance and distance is possible despite proximity is currently being proven to us anew. The artistic works reflect this only apparent contradiction on various levels of content and form.
