photo basel 2017

14. – 18. Juni 2017

photo basel is Switzerland’s first and only international art fair dedicated to photography based art. From its foundation year in 2015, photo basel has since become established as one of the most prominent photography fairs in the German speaking world. This year, a contingent of 38 exhibitors (sixteen nations and five continents), present works of art from far over one hundred artists.

photo basel brings together galleries from around the world in a unique, authentic setting. Be it collectors, visitors or buyers – photo basel fosters the dialog between all actors of the photography community.

In 2017, photo basel is pleased to introduce tape/basel, a new sector of photo basel devoted entirely to the moving image. This first edition of tape/basel features recent international works programmed by photo basel Director Sven Eisenhut and freelance Canadian and Swiss Basel-based Curator Chantal Molleur.

tape/basel is also inviting for this preview launch edition, a special guest, Basel gallery balzer projects. tape/basel featured artists are Mika Taanila(FIN), Kerstin Honeit(GER), Olivier Cheval (FR), Almond Chu (CN), Yvon Chabrowski (GER), Chou Ching-hui (CN), Stacey Steers (USA), Nemanja Nikolic (RS) and Deborah Oropallo (USA). These artists are concerned with issues related to performance, archival and found footage, 3D animation, animated collage and animated photo-montage. We are delighted to partner with photo basel exhibiting galleries for tape/basel: Grundermark/Nilsson Gallery Berlin & Stockholm (Germany, Sweden), La Galerie Paris 1839 (Hong Kong), Catharine Clark Gallery (USA) and Galerie Dix9 (France) bringing together photo/basel viewing experience towards the moving image.

Visitors will find tape/basel in the fair’s main hall on the balcony overlooking the fair.
