Walkshop 4: The Shadow and the Heart

Auf Englisch. With Valerio Rocco Orlando, artist and Research Fellow at the University of Basel, Department of Urban Studies. Age: From 16 years. If we consider art as a tool for imaginative and critical thinking, we can look at the city from a different perspective, understand it more and become aware of what remains in the shadows. In dialogue with a group of students of the Urban Studies Masters from the University of Basel, Valerio Rocco Orlando, artist and researcher, will activate a walkshop in the city of Basel to give voice to stories that take place in the margins of society, and bring inhabitants into the heart of urban life. Participation free of charge, ticket required via ticket link.

Treffpunkt: Kunstmuseum Basel | at the entrance of the Hauptbau

Walkshop 5: Projecting Perceptions | An unofficial institutional critique

Auf Englisch. What lies in the shadows of Kunstmuseum Basel and what needs to be illuminated? Beyond its acclaimed collection and exhibitions, the Kunstmuseum Basel thrives on the often unseen efforts and intricate workings that maintain its influence and legacy. In this walkshop, we want to question and uncover these vital yet hidden aspects of the museum’s operation. The Unofficial Hiking Society AG invites you to a night tour around the museum to shed light not only on the façade but also on unofficial narratives of the institution. Age: From 16 years. Participation free of charge, ticket required via ticket link.
