    Museum Tinguely: Wim Delvoye

    Museum Tinguely: Wim Delvoye

    Basel Arts and Culture

    Since the late 1980s, Delvoye has been known for works which mix the profane and the sublime with a great deal of subtle wit. Tradition unites with utopia and craftsmanship with high-tech. His best-known works are probably the ”cloacas”: digestive machines, which mechanically reconstruct the processes that take place inside the human body from ingestion through to excretion and so make one of the most basic constants of our existence visible and perceptible.

    Kunstmuseum Basel: Chagall – The Breakthrough Years, 1911–1919

    Kunstmuseum Basel: Chagall – The Breakthrough Years, 1911–1919

    Basel Arts and Culture

    Chagall lived in Paris from 1911 until 1914, and in this early creative phase he combined his recollections of Russian provincial life with iconic fragments of the French Metropolis around him. Reminiscences from Russian folk art were assimilated in these works, as were the latest stylistic experiments he was exposed to through his Encounters with many of the most progressive artists of the time, including Picasso, Robert and Sonia Delaunay, and Jacques Lipchitz.

    Fondation Beyeler: Paul Klee

    Fondation Beyeler: Paul Klee

    Basel Arts and Culture

    This exhibition is devoted to a previously little explored aspect of Paul Klee’s work: abstraction. In the first half of the twentieth century, the move away from representational to the development of abstract art became a key theme for many European artists. The Swiss artist Paul Klee also took up this challenge: the almost 10,000 works he created from his early to late works include exciting examples of the development of abstract imagery and of the processes of abstraction in painting. The key aspects of Klee’s abstract works are, moreover, of paramount significance in all his works: nature, architecture, music and written characters.

    Kunstmuseum Basel: Weibsbilder – Eros, Power, Morality & Death

    Kunstmuseum Basel: Weibsbilder – Eros, Power, Morality & Death

    Basel Arts and Culture

    Images of more or less naked women are commonplace in contemporary visual culture. That this was not always so is revealed by a look back at the Middle Ages. During that period, the representation of female nudity was only possible in a tightly circumscribed framework defined by religious strictures. Then, in the 16th century, women are depicted as seductive Venus or fatefully attractive embodiments of Fortuna and Vanitas. They also appear as rulers over men.
