Explore Art Basel's Film Program

From Xu Bing’s Dragonfly Eyes, the first film made entirely of surveillance footage, to Lynn Hershman Leeson's Hitchcockian Vertighost, watch the trailer to see what's in store

Art Basel's film program will feature 16 works by and about artists such as  Ai Weiwei Yayoi Kusama and  Nancy Holt/ Robert Smithson. Curated by Maxa Zoller, highlights include Rä di Martino’s Controfigura, (stand-in) (2017), which unites actors, stand-ins, and crew and splices off- and on-camera situations in a non-linear narrative. Vertighost (2017),  Lynn Hershman Leeson's homage to Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo, investigates the role of the Doppelgänger in the film.
