Permanent collections Jean Tinguely

An exhibition project in dialogue with Centre Pompidou-Metz
In a two-part joint project, Museum Tinguely and Centre Pompidou-Metz present the artist Rebecca Horn (born 1944), one of the most respected and distinctive artists of her generation. Her work is marked by biological, chemical, mythological and fantastical processes of metamorphosis. This special focus on transformation is the common point of departure for the two parallel exhibitions. In the presentation in Basel, combining early performances with later kinetic sculptures, the focus is on processes of transformation involving bodies and machines, with the body conceived of in poetic-surrealist terms.

With his kinetic artworks, Jean Tinguely (1925–1991) was a pioneering figure in the art of the period after 1950. Museum Tinguely, designed by Mario Botta, is located directly at the Rhine and presents the world’s largest collection of his work, of which a selection is on permanent display, from the delicate early reliefs to the monumental machine sculptures of the 1980s.
Museum Tinguely shows a varied temporary exhibition programme that seeks dialogue with other artists, art forms and disciplines, promising an interactive museum experience for all of the senses.
A diverse programme of events – with guided tours and workshops for all age groups, concerts, artistic interventions and interdisciplinary cooperations – allows visitors to experience the museum’s collection and exhibitions in a wide range of ways.
