Rewilding marks the opening of the new Kunsthaus Baselland at its new location at Dreispitz. Around thirty national and international artists from different generations and countries have been invited to participate. Their works, many of which are new productions, explicitly address contemporary ecological, feminist and sociocultural issues. In the context of the opening exhibition, “Rewilding” therefore means: to provide a new home for the dynamic creative forces that the Kunsthaus has harbored since its inception and wishes to continue to foster in its new location; to revive the dynamic of a site that was originally used for handling goods and is now part of a huge urban structural transformation; and to demonstrate creative new ways in which we as a society, despite these times of crisis, can move toward a positive future that is characterized by respect, friendship and—where necessary—forgiveness in our relationships with each other and with all living beings and species around us. “Rewilding” therefore also stands for a positive, collaborative new beginning.
