ARTACHMENT

The ARTACHMENT is a support-oriented exhibition space in Basel for young, professional artists and curators, with the goal to create and expand new networks. The space is a small, 8 sq m former customs house located at Dreiländereck (where the borders of three countries meet), near Basel’s Rhine river port. Raphael Bottazzini initiated this project space in 2007 and continues to seek alternative curatorial perspectives. Curatorship rotates every year to maintain and support the idea of networking. The ARTACHMENT ( TITAN ) similarly offers a platform for poetry, prose, lyrics and much more.

Der TANK

Der TANK is the Art Institute’s exhibition space on the Campus of the Arts at Dreispitz, Basel. This glass cube is host to art practices that are just a little different from those found in traditional project spaces, art institutions or galleries. It provides an opportunity to reflect differently on art practice today and on how art gives shape to a space, providing a place for meditations on future notions of technology, life, materials, and commonality.

Dr. Kuckucks Labrador

This (location-) independent artists’ curation collective cannot easily be categorised. Going with the flow against the current, ignoring hierarchies, overarching generations, subversive. Whether feisty aesthetic or pipe dreamy and rear-cultural, the community forms the centre for either institutional critical and socio-political examination or for joyous collective experiences. Dr. Kuckucks Labrador likes to play with different exhibition and project formats and in doing so represents the interests of artists that go beyond art.

flatterschafft

flatterschafft is a platform facilitating exchange and networking for anyone working in arts and culture. But providing low-cost studio space is not our main focus. Rather it is to create networks, in which all parties can help and promote each other through their knowledge and skills. The exchange between the visual and media arts, architecture, music, dance, theatre, literature and other related disciplines is also of great importance to us, as is the creation of an individual working environment.

WASCHSALON

Nomen est omen: WASCHSALON is an experimental form of the traditional Salon. An event to immerse yourself in local cultural experiences in a friendly household, which is open for everybody once a month.

The mostly personalised performance-based programme is curated along topics connected to the semi-intimacy of an open apartment with a focus on the activities that are typical for a private space, such as sleeping, cooking, sex or laziness.
