The Centre culturel suisse set up an event entirely dedicated to performance art, a medium with a range of definitions at the intersection of several different disciplines. PerformanceProcess, conceived to mark its thirtieth anniversary, offers a subjective approach to performance art in Switzerland from 1960 to 2015 through the works of forty-six artists, companies and groups.
From 18.09.2017 to 18.02.2018, the city of Basel celebrates the breadth and diversity of Swiss performance art from 1960 to the present through an exceptional institutional collaboration between Museum Tinguely, Kaserne Basel, and Kunsthalle Basel in partnership with Centre culturel suisse and supported by the Division of Cultural Affairs, Canton of Basel-Stadt. Together these institutions illuminate performative practices in Switzerland—looking back, for instance, to when Jean Tinguely blew up the Basel Carnival Committee in a performative action in 1974, and looking forward, with new performances by established and emerging artists.
In preamble, in the frame of Parcours Night of Art Basel’s Parcours sector, performance Chaises musicales by Eric Hattan and Julian Sartorius on Saturday June 17th, 11pm, Münsterplatz 11, Basel.
