Conceived by artists Lara Almarcegui, Isabel Lewis, and Santiago Cirugeda-led architecture studio Recetas Urbanas, ‘Basilea’ encourages reflection on a city’s possibilities through a series of immersive projects connecting the city of Basel, its residents, and the over 90,000 visitors who attend Art Basel annually.
'Basilea' aims to create awareness of the active role citizens have to intervene and alter any given urban environment, by encouraging discussions about the use and ownership of public space. The project includes a collectively built structure, a large-scale installation, a series of workshops, events and occasions. 'Basilea' is free and open to the public.
There are two open calls to participate in 'Basilea', one with Recetas Urbanas and one with Isabel Lewis. Find out how to get involved here.
