Umgang mit Sammlungen. The exhibition focuses on events and activities around the topic of collecting.
The focus of this exhibition project lies on events and activities around the topic of collecting. What do we collect, and indeed what is valued enough for us to collect and keep it? What do we do with the collections that we are responsible for?
Following the ‘Making Visible’ exhibition that took place in autumn 2013, a selection of works from the dotMov.bl new media collection will again be presented. This year works from Manon Bellet, Sonja Feldmeier and Alex Silber will be shown. In addition to this, individual works from the Kunstverein Baselland’s collection will be exhibited and discussed in the context of the accompanying events.
The Kunsthaus Baselland is organising the first major institutional presentation of works by the well-known design team breadedEscalope, a group positioned between art and design. Sascha Mikel, Martin Schnabl and Michael Tatschl are at the centre of the Vienna-based collective, and together they develop objects for everyday use; in so doing the process of production comes to the fore. The RePresent objects - for which the three designers realise everyday objects in collaboration with the Basel population by making them from everyday things taken from private collections – will be a key element of the exhibition.
More about breadedEscalope on their website and in ART AUREA, March 2013.
Call for Objects
Basel-RePresent. A cultural project for the people of Basel
breadedEscalope at the Kunsthaus Baselland (8 August – 7 September 2014)
What it’s about:
Trivial objects from everyday life will be assembled into one entity that unifies countless things, with the participation of Basel people of different generations and (professional and/or societal) backgrounds. This will be the Basel-RePresent. These (ideally small) things can be momentoes, tools, souvenirs and the like that you are willing to definitively give the designers.
More about the project on http://the-represent.tumblr.com.
In order to make this possible, we would like to invite you to give us an object from your environment and to share a few words about it.
It will be possible to submit the chosen objects to the Kunsthaus Baselland on the following dates:
Wednesday 23 July – Friday 25 July, 9am – 5pm.
breadedEscalope will be present at these times.
We would like to thank you very much, already, for your participation and engagement
