comunicato stampa

ARTACHMENT - under new curatorial direction - starts this year with a festival.
ART ENTERTAINMENT & DESIRE is located between the prestigious art fairs, from the 13th- 19th of June at Keck-Kiosk, a project room on the grounds of the Kaserne Basel.
The presentation focuses on Independent Artspaces and initiatives and attempts to fill this blind spot in the fabric of the major art fairs.

Every day between 17h and 22h, the Keck Kiosk will be hosted by different Artspaces.

The list of hosts features important Swiss Artspaces:
- Lokal-Int, Bienne
- Marks Blond Project, Bern
- White Space, Zurich
- Curtat Tunnel, Lausanne

As well as international initiatives and projects:
- das weisse haus, Vienna (AT);
- Galerie im Regierungsviertel / Fortgotten Bar Project, Berlin (D)
- RA, select store and platform for fashion and arts, Antwerpen (BE)
- Salon Liz (FL / D)

each of them will be showing their individually curated project at the Kiosk.

Site-specific projects at various locations in Basel accompany the festival:

The Austrian artist and writer Fabian Faltin documents daily the events on the art market in his Art-Talk Show „Kunst, Markt und Manieren“ (Art, Market and Manners).
In the Artachment itself the Installation / Light & Sound Work “White Out / Glisz” by the artist group Re: Fwd is exhibited. At the opening on Monday 13 June the performance group Beuys Toys & Mudisten (Basel) leads the audience with their public parade "Tour d'Art" through different off-spaces in Basel.
Another venue of the festival is in the nearby Agora-Bar. Klaus Auderer & Robert Gfader arranged drawing duels with a broad variety of artists as part of their long-term project “Chessdrawings“.
After dusk the night program of the festival begins with a selection of concerts and auditory performances.
Though the program is highly varied, ART ENTERTAINMENT & DESIRE is built around a common core: a passionate play with the relationships of the art and the art market that directly aims at interaction with the audience. Through this and its diverse network of local and international, divergent places and activities, ART & ENTERTAINMENT DESIRE is a hub for exchanging ideas and a breeding ground for new projects.
