For the 20th edition of Regionale, Kunsthalle Basel celebrates the origins of the tri-regional, multi-institutional collaboration by inviting former Kunsthalle Basel director Peter Pakesch, one of the initiators of Regionale, to curate the annual exhibition of work by artists from the region.

Opening Sat, November 23, 2019
Does age play a role in art beyond the biography of the artist? Does geography, beyond the place of the artist’s youth, and where they live and work today? For twenty years, the Regionale has been a unique event taking place at the center of Europe connecting three countries (Switzerland, Germany, and France), their histories, and traditions, leading to various exhibitions in different venues. It is not exclusively for young artists, nor dedicated to appreciating established ones. It is rather an inventory, and a cartography, in the best sense. In this edition of the Regionale, all of the featured artists are either older than sixty-five or younger than thirty-five. To juxtapose youth and maturity might have implied something different twenty years ago—when decades were more closely identified with particular styles—than it does today. Here, nineteen artistic positions meet around two biographical “poles” at eighteen unique institutions, and together focus on thematic questions with both older and newly produced works of art.

Featuring Annette Barcelo, Selina Baumann, Camille Brès, Peter Brunner-Brugg, Jorinde Fischer, Pierre-Charles Flipo, Gerome Johannes Gadient, Hannah Gahlert, Vincent Gallais, Danae Hoffmann, Géraldine Honauer, Rebecca Kunz, Marie-Louise Leus, Catrin Lüthi K, Marie Matusz, Guido Nussbaum, Mirjam Plattner, Jürg Stäuble, and Werner von Mutzenbecher.
