Cultural Spaces in Basel - Film and Video Exhibition 68-88-18

Event Dates: 
6 April, 2018 - 19:00 - 27 May, 2018 - 23:45

The film and video exhibition 68-88-18 tells the story of Basel's cultural spaces, of urban niches, youth revolts, political provocation and artistic creation. It shows how alternative cultural spaces have shaped life in the Basel area since the 1960s.

Using public and private films and videos, the exhibition illustrates artistic haunts in Basel. Spaces such as the Alte Stadtgärtnerei, Hafen, Nt, Schlotterbeck, Stücki or Walzwerk embodied the yearning for freedom and for a self-determined future in the 60s, 70s, 80s and beyond, right up to the present.

Every Saturday at 7 p.m. there are talks and a film screening, plus an open bar

Every Sunday at 2 p.m., there's an introductory tour through the exhibition
