An exhibition by Nick Mauss: «Bizarre Silks, Private Imaginings and Narrative Facts, etc.»
Today: 11.00 AM - 6.00 PM
07 February 2020 - 20 September 2020
Artist Nick Mauss (* 1980) has repeatedly turned exhibition-making—the assembly of precisely staged relations—into an art form. He especially conceives the scenography for this show, which brings together and reframes works by contemporary and historical figures, emphasizing aspects of legibility, textility, fragility, and aggression across various media.

Burroughs / Brion Gysin, Hannah Höch, Ray Johnson, Konrad Klapheck, Ketty La Rocca, Nick Mauss, Rosemary Mayer, Robert Morris, Ken Okiishi, Edward Owens, Anton Perich, Georgia Sagri, Bea Schlingelhoff, and Megan Francis Sullivan

It is renowned for its audacious and varied program as well as for its engagement with artists, often before they are widely known. Curious visitors of all ages are welcome to its spectacular display spaces for thought-provoking exhibitions and events.
The library of the Basler Kunstverein is free and open to the public. It houses an impressive selection of 30,000 books and catalogues on topics related to contemporary art and subscribes to 35 different magazines of art and culture.
