The Ausstellungsraum Klingental is an exhibition space, which provides a platform for artists living and working in Basel. We present, discuss and promote their artistic practice bringing it to public attention. We consider the exhibition space to be a meeting place between contemporary art and the public. The Ausstellungsraum also applies its experimental approach to its important role within the various citywide exhibition projects such as Museum Night and Regionale.

An important feature of the Ausstellungsraum is the promotion of young talent. The Ausstellungsraum Klingental discovers and presents innovative artistic work and provides opportunities for curators to develop ideas within a professional framework. However, we are also keen to promote and present important positions from older generations of artists. 

The Ausstellungsraum Klingental was first established by an artist initiative in 1974 within the Kaserne area. Since then it has been run by a changing coalition of artists and art mediators such as art-historians and curators.

Im 15. Jahrhundert lebte im Kloster Klingental eine Gruppe radikaler Nonnen, die geschickte Geschäftsfrauen waren und gegen den Kodex des klösterlichen Lebens verstiessen, indem sie sich prunkvolle Zimmer einrichteten, weltliche Bücher und Kleidung aufbewahrten und das ...
